Please join me in welcoming Paul Wheaton and Alex Ojeda, authors of Permaculture Playing Cards





Read the book review here!

Paul Wheaton and Alex Ojeda will be hanging out in the forums until November 22nd answering questions and sharing their experiences with you all.

At the end of the week, we'll make a drawing for 4 lucky winners to win a copy of their cards! From now until Friday, all new posts in the Permaculture forum are eligible to win.

To win, you must use a name that follows our naming policy and you must have your email set up to receive the Daily-ish email.

The winners will be notified by Purple Moosage and must respond within 24 hours. Only the winners who respond within that timeframe will receive their deck. Watch for a PM, and a notice in this thread announcing the winners!


Please remember that we favour perennial discussion.  The threads you start will last beyond the event.  You don't need to use Paul Wheaton and Alex Ojeda's names to get their attention. We like these threads to be accessible to everyone, and some people may not post their experiences if the thread is directed to the author alone.


Posts in this thread won't count as an entry to win the book, but please say "Hi!" to Paul Wheaton and Alex Ojeda and make them feel welcome!

Hello! These would make for a lovely set of backcountry cards! Leave them in a local hut and infect more brains!

I made a list and Alexander just start cranking the images out.  And then when we were about 75% of the way through the list, we started getting to the end of the list and what was left was harder.  So we made a few changes.   When we were down to about five cards left to do, we started the kickstarter:



Geoff wrote to me to say that he would rather not be in the cards, because he's a muslim and cards are for gambling, so we took him out.  

About a year ago I contacted Alexander with a list of 72 new card ideas, thinking we could probably take the best of that list to do another 52 cards.   He said "yes!" and then he said "too busy."  So ...   maybe someday we will make a second deck.

I will send each of you a PM--please respond by Sunday to claim your deck of cards!

And, for those of you who didn't win, you can buy them HERE! Buy a deck! Buy 12 decks! Be crazy like me and get 48 decks and feel like Oprah, "And you get a deck, and you get a deck, and YOU get a deck!!!"

I deliberately didn't try to win these cards because I won Jasmine's workbook, but I wanted a deck so I went to Amazon, and it was on sale! Just ordered!
