Hello Everybody,
I am new to this site, and about 3 years into my exploration of permaculture.
I am a 46 year young single guy, that has enjoyed the outdoors and nature his entire life (fishing, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking etc...) It wasn't until I became certified as a wastewater operator here in N.Y. (a few years ago) that I truly began to understand what todays society is doing to our natural resources.
So began my interests and education in permaculture and like philosophies. Having a background in process engineering, I have been concentrating my reeducation on renewable energy, and sustainable building practices.
I have since left my career in water treatment, and currently exploring a new found talent in sculpting, and trying to make ends meet in landscaping (hardscaping and lawn care) for now.
My current thoughts and dreams are to Possibly relocate to Colorado, N.Texas , New Mexico, ? and possibly be a part of an IC in that region.
Regardless if I move there, or decide to remain in the Catskill Mountain area of N.Y. , I desire to meet more people who share in the permaculture mindset, and philosophies.
Last year I was lucky enough to meet a wonderfull pair of people, Peter from Denmark (METTA on facebook) and his fiancé Ashley, who lived next door to me for most of last summer. They are off on another hopefully fantasic journey abroad teaching earthbag and strawbale construction methods etc....

So if there is anyone local to me, that would like to possibly include another friendship in their life, (even better a woman who's open to a LTR) who's like minded - I'd like to hear from you.
