Well we just received 10xRaspberry Pi's and I am currently installing Minecraft Pi edition and buying keyboards, mice and cables - many thanks for all your support. Further support is always welcome and needed as we develop this amazing resource...

We are Adam, Victoria and Django and together, we run The Invisible Orchard. This is an independent, unfunded family run studio in rural Cumbria. We set up The Invisible Orchard on £150 donated by friends, and equipped it through our own home items, donated goods from supporters and local business and things we found through recycling sites. We use it as a family studio for our own work and to offer creative activities and events for our community.

Invisible Orchard Website

Our ethos is to offer a space in which people can play, create and learn. We offer drop in days, workshops, events and regular clubs, run as volunteers and resourced through recycling, upcycling and donations.




One of our most popular sessions is a weekly Game School club for children ages 5 upwards, and our regular monthly Minecraft Days and Special Events. These are popular with children of all ages, both home schoolers, excluded pupils and those in full time school. The problem is, apart from one personal computer that we bring from home, we do not have the kit needed to develop this properly for the kids, as it relies on a bring your own device policy. This means some children cannot take part and the need to share one computer between up to 15 children stretches their ability to share to the limit! But these kids have passion and talent and we want to help them build on that. so... this is what we want to do:

We want to start a weekly Minecraft Code Club. We already have 5 monitors donated by a local business and re-cyled by us to get us started but this is what we need now to make it happen:

5 x ADAPTER, RASPBERRY PI, HDMI TO VGA

5 x RASPBERRY PI, MODEL B, 512MB WITH 8GB SD CARD

5 x ACCESSORY KIT

That is it. And this is what we will do if we can raise the funds... We will run regular Minecraft Code clubs that will teach Python code to all ages and spread the idea of games based learning to our rural community. We will offer sessions for parents who want to learn about Minecraft, code and new technology. We will also make video tutorials and post them on YouTube - giving the wider global community a chance to learn with us...
