Michael Judd says that if permies.com brings in $5000 to his kickstarter, then permies.com can decorate an entire page in his new book!
I'm not sure what we would put there just yet, but the opportunities for comedy are endless!

If this is not the correct forum to post about our free permaculture learning-teaching tool maybe an admin can move this or direct me to do so ...

We are joyed to announce the release of our open source Permaculture Principles Design Deck. Printable files are available freely for download or you can get the fully produced card set direct from a print on demand printer here :


As an offering to the World Community, Gaiacraft presents a unique card deck which explores the Permaculture Principles in a dynamic new way. Featuring 64 principles, directives, strategies, attitudes, and ethics sourced from elders of the Permaculture Movement, this is a collection of foundational concepts that can support any permaculture design process. Mixing art, symbol, photo and text, this creative learning and teaching toolkit inspires new insights and deepened understandings about the applications of permaculture.

The Permaculture Principles Card Deck supports people's learning / teaching practice and works with people of all ages, disciplines, educational backgrounds and experience levels. This is a game that can be played in countless ways, potentially engaging all the different learning / teaching styles at once. Personal reflections, classrooms, conversations, site designs or decision making processes can all benefit from the use of these cards. The principles were inspired from study of how indigenous peoples have lived in harmony with their environment along with insights gleaned from modern understandings of how nature has designed itself. 

These lushly illustrated, full color, double sided cards are available as an open source files for download at www.gaiacraft.com. For those wanting to print the cards, it's likely more affordable and less work to order them through our print on demand printer who can mail it to you anywhere in the world. 

This visionary permaculture learning and teaching toolset will bring creative insights and artful inspiration into your educational life journey.
