Permaculture workers

Since then, we have continued thanks to dozens of expert and dedicated volunteers working behind the scenes across Australia, United States and the rest of the world. Our off-site volunteer team includes architects, accountants, lawyers and legal advisors, nurses, social workers, education experts, permaculture experts, company directors, secretarial support, publicity officers, fundraisers, editors, graphic designers, HR specialists, researchers, writers and sponsorship co-ordinators.

In 2012 we gained our 501(c)(3) status in the United States and enjoy tax deductibility for donors in both Australia and the United States.
