Do you want to bring permaculture to your region, state, or country? 

PRI/USA can help you develop your education site and your teaching experience to host accredited and certified permaculture courses.  PRI/USA is a nonprofit service organization dedicated to the promotion of Permaculture practices and professional designers & instructors. Master Plan Sites and Certified Instructors work to deliver high standards and expand availability of permaculture education.  See below for more information.


PRI/USA acts as a fiscal agent for non-profit organizations prior to their NP status. This allows the organization to receive tax deductible donations and focus on getting started while PRI/USA does the reporting and IRS record keeping. The book "Sustainable Revolution" was PRI/USA's first Fiscal Agent contract. Authors Juliana Birnbaum and Louis Fax traveled the world documenting and photographing permaculture practices around the world. Funds from supporters were managed by PRI/USA and used to pay expenses until the book was published in early 2014.   http://www.cultureofpermaculture.org/blog/
