This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Community.

In this Badge Bit, you will improve a physical location that has already been branded. To see how to brand a location, look at this thread. This should take 8 Oddball points worth of work. It can be one giant project, or a series of smaller ones. It should take a skilled worker 8 hours to complete with all their materials already assembled--it will likely take you three times as long.

Ideas for improving a location:

      - Set up a water proof log and trinket center - possibly a mail box  etc. etc. etc.
      - add art
      - add benches (like this three log bench or this half-log bench with four legs)
      - add a stool
      - add a small shed for tools, snacks, toys, garbage, seeds, etc.
      - chalk board
      - if appropriate, water
      - if appropriate, electricity
          - music
          - solar powered lights
      - add a covered bench (maybe in combination with the small shed)
      - hugelkultur
      - picnic table
      - an arbor/trellis/bean teepee for shade
      - a rock pathway
      - decking
      - a bird house
      - a frog pond
      - a decorative gate or fence, like those in the junkpole fence thread
      - pully system for delivering items
      - natural exercise equipment, like climbing wall, chin-up bar, rope swings, climbing rope, rope bridge, etc


To qualify for this Badge Bit, you must:
 - Post link to the post in the thread about the branded location, that has info and pics about your improvement
 - Post before, during and after pics.
 - this improvement must rack up 8 points by the rules of Oddball points
This tiny ad will self destruct in five seconds.
