PINA has grown to fulfill its founders’ expectations and more.

PINA Diploma Holder: Education & Site Design

I applied for a Diploma because I was qualified many times over, and the board made it simple for experienced permaculture designers and educators with an established reputation to obtain a diploma. So I decided to take advantage of that opportunity. One benefit is that I can add the PINA logo to my certificates and course advertising to indicate they are nationally recognized by my peers for quality.

For people interested in going the professional route, I think PINA is a tremendous support system.
