I joined the kickstarter ($100) and hoping to find some interesting stuff in "my stuff" or via email but am not finding anything related to the kickstarter yet. On a side note, my original email was Polklander777 but since I contributed to the kickstarter under lja9402@gmail I thought I needed to change my email to lja9402 on permies site as well. Anyway, hoping to get some direction on getting some yummies associated with the awesome kickstarter. Hope the email change at the last minute didn't screw things up too much.
Second question, in fiddling around with my profile/etc I saw that a bunch of cool free stuff had been sent to me that I never "accepted". Curious if that comes in an email or because I don't recall seeing anything like that. So please let me know how I can access some of this wonderful information. I just moved from the big city to rural NE and want to start an awesome edible landscape and need all the help I can get.

Wood Box Day 2022 Edition...!
After a hearty lunch of Thanksgiving leftovers, we all began our Wood Box Day projects.
The end goal was to replace some of our plastic containers with wood boxes and/or other natural materials. Planning is an important part of projects like these, and once we all agreed on our goals for the afternoon, we referred back to these plans to make our ideas a reality.
Caleb spent his afternoon creating a box for all the measuring tapes scattered about the Workshop, Classroom, and Library. His was highlighted with hand-made dovetail joints.
Grey, Daniel, and Fred worked on a prototype for wooden boxes to hold our event dishes. Here's Grey and Daniel adding in a few additional blades to the table saw so they could accomplish some fancy cutting and joinery.
Julia and I teamed-up to create a replacement or two for the plastic bins that hold the seat cushions for the mass bench in the Classroom. She practiced with a wide variety of hand- and power-tools for this project, and we were both very pleased and proud of the end product. The lid comes next...!
Final verdict: Wood Box Day 2022 was a success!
Thanks for reading, and enjoy your day...!
