Love the calender. Might want to setup at a farmer market or co-op and sell them their too. $12-$20 seems like a very good price point. DM a message and I'll link your etsy store in my live stream channel.

Cheers

742 - I would like to be one.
743 - I'm a homesteader educator so there is a lot of things I could teach.
744 - I currently do livestream on dlive, but I also have a discord channel. Zoom is possible just harder for me to do in the field.
745 - I think this is a great idea and we can grow and make it happen pretty awesomely

I really like the PEP badges. For a few years I was trying to create something similar for my garden school. -- My biggest push back is always "why should I" just for a badge? Paul's approach to this was very good. The next step to the why, in my thoughts would be as a Permaculture Portfolio, something that artists or building have to show their past works. The PEX i'm trying to develop for my students is more lessons and useful skill based focused. (Again just as in Paul's Case it centered working here at the Farmacy)

My thoughts. a.) Help design a format to show the work required to get a PEP. Maybe like a photo album, and description of what was required to achieve the goal. Unique to each person, but still with loose guidelines. b.) We all need to talk about the PEP more to normies this could be a great way to slowly introduce some people into the permaculture world. IE: I use Hügelkultur Beds here in Appalachia to slowly introduce aspect of permaculture to the mases. c.) If there was a way we could work together to help scale the PEX so that Wheaton Labs, Mavis Institute, (Insert You Name), +++ could work together to create a loose union of certifiable projects. (I know this would be very difficult) But, I think is also falls into other idea Paul has talked like having a list of shareable community projects.  

All and All I think we are on the right track with PEX/SKIP. I will continue to do more and more and retool some of them for my place, so I can have my own set of rules that fit my space better. -- With all the great minds here, and the great post before me, I see a lot of cool ideas just waiting to be used in to achieve awesomeness.

Here is an update from today. These are both 5gal pails. This is my field Ruth Stout Rows.

sorry about that. Those smaller ones are each 1gal, the larger yellow one is 5gal and it's about 90% full, but if you need more picture I can add more. In the picture is around 10gal. I added over the months ~20-30gal.  With 5 adults here, (my parents are very wasteful eaters) that is about 2 days worth of composting. Normally it goes to the pig or chickens, but every 2 months or so I collect enough to go to my Vermicomposting toilet, and into my garden plots.  Next, time I add some to the gardens I will update the pictures.

Here we are in the Coopenheimer the Pallet Barn. This is where the ducks, chickens and guineas sleep.

Below are the picture of the safety checks.

Using left over stuff I have sitting around to upcycle.

Plastic old chicken waterer and old window screen.

The screen allows them to crawl around with drowning.
