How did you become interested in permaculture?

I'm more interested in participating in volunteering, organizing, marketing, co-teaching, etc... of upcoming PDC courses and putting what I've learned into practice through design, installation, education, hands-on demonstrations and intensives, etc... in exchange for skill sharing, certifications, membership, social bonding, money, transportation, food, herbs, land, community, tools, knowledge, childcare, books, seeds, plants, photography and film-making equipment, software, skills, etc...

If you have taken a Permaculture Design Course, who was your was your teacher and what year did you receive your certification?

Apartment Balcony: though very little direct sunlight. Rooftop Terrace :(shared with other tenants) growing kitchen herbs immediate family relationships extended family relationships friendly relationships work relationships professional relationships political relationships monetary relationships sovereign relationship with Self

How are you currently applying the permaculture principles in your life? (Care of people and the earth, fair distribution of surplus, promotion of diversity, cooperation, integration, zero waste, etc.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permaculture)

No, not currently a member of such, but definitely interested in becoming aligned with people of similar resonance, goals, dreams, desires, etc... and establishing a physical home base on land that has ample supply of pure fresh spring water rich in trace minerals and from sources uncontaminated by synthetic pollutants. Also close proximity to wilderness, intact forest & various full sun environments as well as are a definite plus.

What are some of your favorite permaculture resources? (Books, videos, websites, etc.)

cymatics : ) I do have deep respect and admiration for the traditional council meeting and participatory consensus decision making process of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) people of Turtle Island which greatly influenced (through Benjamin Franklin) the creation of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution http://www.ratical.org/many_worlds/6Nations/#FF I also found this interesting article to share about the Permaculture Credit Union: http://www.oly-wa.us/HerbnWisdom/PDF/InvisibleStructures.pdf

What are some aspects of life in New York that you would like to see the group address from a permaculture perspective? (For example: land use patterns, the banking and healthcare systems, transportation, housing, community development, food, waste

Yes. 2008 PDC, taught by Toby Hemenway, Larry Santoyo, Dave Jacke, Andrew Faust and more... at Sivananda Ashram Yoga Ranch. Diploma... ??? In the process of trying to figure out whether or not I'm already qualified (I'm a Landscape Architect and have been working in the field of landscape construction for over 10 years).

Introduction

dreamer/designer/art­ist/builder uprooted and seeking my tribe and to live and build naturally to ride, flow and grow-- snow, air, water, earth and fire... to play in the warm blue green waters under the starfire where the coconuts grow pranafire

What Bryan M. is saying about this Meetup Group

I think the meetup is great!!! I think we could use more venues for meeting, though the food at EarthMatters Cafe is AWESOME!! I'd love to see a regular event in my local community (Park Slope)
