Game pieces for the Orchard To Lunchbox game

Recently I was commissioned to build some wooden components for an educational game designed by The Open Fort.

Using mostly 9mm birch ply / pine/ purpleheart and lots of jigs, routing, mitre saw cutting and pattern-making I built a whole bunch of mini apple crates, some delivery trucks, hand-held forklifts, apple trees, sorting trays, flagpoles, cash registers and more.

The game was ingeniously developed, for school workshops, to promote awareness of issues around the food industry and the importance of minimizing food waste. Designed by Toby and The Open Fort team in collaboration with the Love Food Hate Waste and Talking Trash NZ, and it features a relay-race game with stages that represent the process of a fresh apple from tree to buyer, including picking, packing, sorting, pricing, delivery and all the paraphernalia involved.
