Cedar Board Game

Inspired by human-scale chess on the streets of New York and the Permaculture movement, Cedar Board Game is a free, live, interactive, collaborative event for five families at a time. The Coast once supported 30,000 inhabitants and provided all of their sustenance with cedar known as the ‘mother’ of the culture. Nowadays, the same-size population on the Coast could not survive more than three days without supplies from the mainland. Cedar Board Game is a playful engagement with our local environment that features the five senses and your own ingenuity. We provide the giant game board. You and your kids, family and friends are the players.
