Thank you Delvin,

I would love to purchase a complete deck from you in the new year. These are high quality cards and I have no idea how to get the fully produced card set direct from an on-demand printer. Perhaps we can discuss that briefly at our next meeting?

I have no idea what such a printer would look like, or how to access one, so for now I think it would be best for me to purchase a fully produced deck.
I could pick them up next time we meet in Roberts creek, or perhaps you could bring a few decks along to either our January or February meeting, for those of us who are interested in buying a complete set?

February would probably suit me better than January, it's been an expensive month!

Keep up the good work and enjoy the Christmas season!

Celebrating the Winter Solstice, Gaiacraft releases a new free, open source expansion set for the Permaculture Design Principles Deck...

At the heart of permaculture is a set of teachings from nature. These principles, directives, strategies, approaches, attitudes and design methods can be applied to any system of design and development. This is part of Nature's toolkit for creating and maintaining relationships, approaching challenges and opportunities, and creatively addressing the unique conditions of any site or situation. In 2012 we shared a 64 card design deck. After sharing this with some of the Pioneers of Permaculture and collecting more of these valuable insights, we decided to release an extension set!

Gaiacraft : Permaculture Principles Design Deck 2.0 

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

Toby Hemenway observes the nature creates self-renewing, super productive and ultra resilient systems. He see permaculture principles which share the lessons of nature are 'indicators of sustainability'. This card deck features tools in the permaculture toolkit including principles, directives, strategies, attitudes, design methods, decision making protocols 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 cards help support a permaculture journey for people of all ages and experience levels. There are not instructions for utilizing the set, instead we encourage people to develop games and curriculum to suite their own needs and creative ideas. 

These beautifully illustrated, full color, double sided cards are available as an open source files for download at the gaiacraft website. It's likely more affordable and less work to order the professionally printed cards which are die cut with round edges from an 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.
