Updated Backyard of Life Event Flyer

Here is some more info:

Wouldn't it be great if there was a fun, informal and educational way to get people into their Backyards and connected with their food source again? Well, there is, and that's why we're throwing this Event!

I've designed a boardgame to get us 'growing our own', living organically, and reframing our whole relationship to food. It's called the 'Backyard of Life' – think Trivial Pursuit, but with gardening knowledge instead of trivia, and seeds not plastic tokens. A game where the aim is to learn fast, grow smart, and out-produce your family and friends while having fun. A game where knowing your brassicas from your chenopods will be worth its weight in gold!

We think 'Backyard of Life' would be a Great Addition to your Life for these reasons:

  • Innovative and unique game that involves the whole group/family in growing food – Monopoly was the boardgame that defined the last economic paradigm - Backyard of Life could define the next - one based on sustainability and community.


  •  The first consumer product that reconnects people to the Land and creates a virtuous cycle of food production and stewardship.


  • Heralds a change in our relationship to food by radically reducing the energy inputs used in our current food supply - doing this all while having fun!


  • A window into the past and a glimpse of a real future - the Board is a representation of a Healthy Balanced North American Ecosystem - one which no longer exists today, but a Vision of what our Backyards could be!!


  • Not only looks good, plays nice, also a Great Value!  The most relevant gardening info from 20+ Books, seeds included of 30+ varieties of vegetables, and starts saving you money within 90 days!!!
