2013-2014 PA Directors

Meet the directors

2013 saw 5 of us stand for voluntary positions on the Board with the basic requirements of complying with the regulations of being a ‘Company Limited by Guarantee'.  We feel it’s important to continue to nurture a national, democratic organisation that represents the aspirations of permaculture people and groups.
