Permaculture is more than just good gardening. It is a lifelong approach to analysis, actions and social structures that results in better relationships, more functional systems and a clearer understanding of everything necessary for human communities to thrive. – CJ

The Permaculture-Exchange was established in 1998 to facilitate the free exchange of ideas, materials and labor pertaining to permaculture. In recent years fee-based environmental events, permaculture courses and job listings have been added to the list coverage. Members can post pertinent information that follows permaculture's basic principles of care, respect and fair share. Permaculture knowledge recognizes our human communities as natural systems, promoting better efficiency, cooperative relationships and greater abundance.
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.
Recognized by The New York Times, The Old Stone House – MS 51 Partnership Gardens are the first Food Forest model in NYC, based on permaculture design principles. The project began in 2004 and becomes more complex, beautiful, abundant and community centered each year.
Field Practice at the Old Stone House continues as weather permits.
