It may be raining here but it's still a pretty excited weekend! We hit our goal a week ago and are now at 130%! If you haven't pledged yet, this may be the last chance for awhile to get your own deck of the Food Forest card game. If you have already supported us, please consider clicking over to Matt Powers's thread and support his Permaculture Student 2 textbook project! He is in mid-campaign right now, which is where these things tend to slow down a bit, so he really needs our help!

Thanks again for making this card game happen!!!

Hello friends!

I am excited to say that the Food Forest Card Game is now available on my new website's "gift shop" page. The website is a work in progress, with lots of pages still under construction, but please let people know that the cards are available as of today! http://foodforestcardgame.com

Please let me know what you think of the new look!

Cheers,
Karl

Free Resources Page on http://www.FoodForestCardGame.com!

Hello friends!  I have been hard at work on the Food Forest card game web page, and have just put my first "free resource" on the site!  It's PDF instructions for giving my Paw Paw fruit tasting and cold stratification workshop to 3rd - 6th grad students.  This presentation was very well received, and I have reports of several students who later gave their parents repeat presentations at home following the class. The instructions come with useful pictures and a full play-by-play presentation that you can recreate for your own students.  The general format of the presentation can be used for other fruits with a little modification.

Check it out here: http://foodforestcardgame.com/3_free_resources/Free_School_Garden_Resources.aspx

Peace,
Karl

Hello again!

Quick update: This month I am working hard on a new game for you all to play with the Food Forest cards.  The game is called Homesteader, for 1-4 players. In this game players compete to stake out a homestead, using cards to claim territory and pennies as fence posts. Once the players have defined their property lines, they compete to use their resources most efficiently.

I am still in the development stage, but the game is intense and exciting. I can't wait to share the instructions once they are complete! http://www.FoodForestCardGame.com

Cheers,
Karl

I have been donating to The Eden Reforestation Projects for several years, but am pleased to say that I am now able to donate a lot more from Food Forest Card Game profits.

Here are my thoughts on my own voluntary tree tax: [click here]

Sneak Preview!

Hello friends! I need some help testing a new game that you can play with the Food Forest cards. The working title is "Homesteader" and, to quote my son, Ian: it's "really fun!" The game is intended for ages 8 and up. Here is a link to a draft of the instructions. They're a little involved, but it's definitely worth figuring out: Homesteader Draft

Cheers,
Karl
