Urban Farmer - Serious Game
We share the serious game with you as it is a great way to learn, share lessons, and to discuss actions and consequences with each other, or use it to decide which strategy to take. This game focuses on: 'In African Farmer you are responsible for managing a household and small farm in an African village.
You have some land and the labour resources of your household. You start the game with some cash and your household’s food requirements are covered for the first year. With these limited resources must:
- Decide what to grow in the fields.
- Buy seeds, fertilizer and other goods and services from the market.
- Watch out for bad weather, crop diseases and other chance events.
- Choose your family’s diet and look after their health and education.
As the seasons change, you can see the results of your decisions and adapt your strategy.'
