The Permaculture-Exchange was established in 1998 to facilitate the free exchange of ideas, materials and labor related to permaculture.Job offers, fee-based environmental events, and permaculture courses have been added to the list coverage. Members can post information that follows permaculture's basic principles of care, respect and fair share; recognizing our human communities as natural systems by promoting better efficiency, more cooperative relationships and greater abundance for all.

Claudia Joseph, founder and Director of the NY Permaculture Exchange, is a permaculture teacher, consultant and community gardener.  As the Director of Environmental Programs at the Old Stone House she has designed and installed a permanent useful landscape with students, apprentices and volunteers as well as the programs and events that promote community sustainability.
