Ran into a landowner who gave me a strong nudge in this direction. He likes Paul's system, though it doesn't all apply to his property. For the most part, he's looking for agroforestry, construction/carpentry, and livestock skills. I'm currently living in a different rural location with a variety of opportunities and challenges, some overlapping with what he's looking for, so I thought I'd take advantage of the PEP framework to work on/document some skills. I don't see that the PEP skills are fully fleshed out or really organized in a way that makes sense (reading the arguments over what it takes to get a badge in textiles vs. food prep was illuminating), so I'm just going to do the stuff that I already do and document it. I figure I'll get a few badges that way no matter what.

Hi there, welcome to the PEP program! I realize that the exact BBs in the PEP system may not work for everyone in every situation, but they're what Paul is going for.
To get certified for them, you need to post your documentation to the BB you're applying for. So check out the requirements in the BB you want and post your photos/videos there and hopefully you'll get certified for all sorts of stuff.
The issue with posting them out here on their own is threefold:
It will take us much longer to assess what you did and if it meets the requirements because we have to skip between your post and the one with the requirements listed out
The programmers will work on a way to tie the BB threads to the Badge threads and have it all work together. So separate posts like this won't jive with the software
I hope that all makes sense... Welcome!!!
