~ PINA Materializing at Long Last!

After four years of planning, PINA has gone LIVE! This professional organization is designed to support students and experienced practitioners of Permaculture across the continent and Hawaii.

We invite you to check out our website and share your thoughts about PINA’s proposed design plans. The documents are posted at permaculturenorthamerica.org.

During the month of February our survey will be in place for your consideration at: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1530086/08a62bacf288. In early March, PINA’s Board of Directors will review comments and amend the plans accordingly.

PINA’s goal is to begin accepting memberships and diploma applications by this spring, after organizing committees and review panels are in place. PINA will also be a guide in the process of forming North American Regional HUBS.*

As PINA launches, donations are welcome in support of this work!

We look forward to evolving this organization together!
