BB20 Skill Building Event


October 19th-23rd, 2020
Near Missoula, Montana

Limited to 24 Participants!!!

About BB20:

BB20 stands for "Badge Bit 20" and is an event for those who have already completed 20 badge bit activities in the SKIP curriculum. SKIP stands for "SKills to Inherit Property" and it is a set of experiences you can complete to prove you can do permaculture.  While a PDC teaches you how to do permaculture design and analysis, SKIP is hands-on.  You are making things, fixing problems. Building solutions.

When you complete several things (called Badge Bits, or BBs), you earn a badge. This is an event aimed at those who have completed 20 or more BBs, and need Wheaton Lab's guidance and facilities to complete even more!


Feel of the Event:

In this program, you will gain and demonstrate new skills.  It isn't about training, classroom time or lengthy discussion.  It's about pounding out actual projects that you want to accomplish. This event will be heavily focused on giving attendees the ability to complete badges they cannot complete at home, such as building a 7 foot tall hugelkultur garden bed, or cooking in a rocket oven, using a scythe, or driving an excavator.

There will be a guide/facilitator for all the planned work.  Each day will be loosely organized around a certain Badge Bit activities, but attendees may decide to work on other BBs if they want. It will be largely self-paced with instructors available. Come armed with a list of BBs you want to get knocked out, and  The event is limited to 24 participants.



Daily Schedule

Day 0 (October 18th) - Get Settled In: Set up your tent or move into your cabin, take some time to explore Wheaton Labs and get settled in
 
Day 1 (October 19th) - Earthworks and Gardening Digging with an excavator, building a hugelkultur garden bed
 
Day 2 (October 20th) - Rocket: Starting and cooking on various rocket stoves and ovens
 
Day 3 (October 21st) - Metalworking: Make a kindling cracker and/or other fire tools
 
Day 4 (October 22nd) - Food Prep and Preservation:   Cooking on rocket stoves and ovens, using solar dehydrators and haybox cookers
 
Day 5 (October 23) -  Free Choice:  This is a day to work on the BBs you most want to accomplish, or to finish up earlier BBs.




Instructors

Mike Haasl --Instructor
Mike Haasl is a mechanical engineer, woodworker, blacksmith, and permaculture homesteader in northern Wisconsin.  He constructed a sweet greenhouse, builds with pallets and upcycled material, and experiments with compost heat.  He is developing a demonstration site for permaculture homesteading, and collaborating to create the SKIP program.

I’d like to register - I was all lined up to attend last year, but then ... floods, seizures, evacuation. I’ve been trekking with PEP throughout a crazy transitional year, and am super excited to finally visit the lab.

Hi there,

I'm still waiting for my BB 20 list to get certified/approved but I'd like to get my name on the list for attending this event.

We've moved to Idaho last year and I think I'm now with in a few hours driving distance !

Also, one of my challenges has been having milking goats (makes it hard to travel) and I have a sitter set up but had the thought that I could drag them along with me (horse trailer, electronet fence) if anyone wanted to do goat milking during the event? Or cheese making for that matter.

Thanks

I suspect that someday, somebody will be keeping goats up at the lab.  But I think coming to visit with goats might be a bit much.  

Will they eat knapweed?  :)

Don't know about the knap weed.

I know they like star thistle but I haven't found any knap weed here yet to try them with it.

Looking forward to coming up and seeing your place!

Hello! I have a question based on an assumption that I want to be sure I'm accurate in making! For those of us PDC holders who have done dozens of these BBs over the course of life but no longer have, say, the ability to document their past exploits in chaining their tires or backing their uhaul up with their car in tow or farming their socks because they're past events that never got photographed and now perhaps the tools or machines or goats with which they could prove they've done it and survived are no longer available, does this requirement mean that those skills get put aside in favor of accomplishing BBs that haven't yet been done and/or that can be done again if the tools are accessible? I'm assuming yes, because regarding attending the BB20, it's not about having the skills on the BB list but is about having them documented for the proof. This makes total sense so I want to make sure that I'm right about how to proceed TY!

Hi Crystal, you've got it!

The stirfry I made for the Food Prep BB was not the first stir-fry I've ever made, nor the last.

Hope you can grab some old pictures, take some new ones, and join us in October!

I'm so excited for BB20!

What BB's are people most interested in working on?

We're talking about how to divvy up the equipment, and instructors. Who of y'all are married to the posted schedule, and who is okay being a little more loose with the schedule?

I'm not married to the schedule.  I think we these free events it is fairly loose and we can work on whatever we want (pending equipment/tool/supply availability).

I really want to build a hugel, do a bunch of rocket BBs, play with the willow bank and do some other odds and ends.  

I'd like to spend at least half my time working on stuff and the remainder of the time helping other folks to succeed.

Me too!

I'm open to a more flexible schedule.  I am most interested in BB from the Natural Building, Earthworks, and Rocket Aspects as they are the most challenging for me to do elsewhere.  There are a few random/other bb I want to do too - like haybox rice with rocket boiled water.  I can help/teach in the textile arena if there is interest.  I'm wondering if there are stinging nettles or brambles that I could make into twine (textile-sand)?

Mike & Ash,

Just popping in to check on what we might need to have set up or in stock here at Wheaton Labs for what y'all are planning. Anything in particular we need to order or get ready for you?

Hey Jen, thank you for popping in with the offer and coordinating.

So far, I'm tracking that we'll be kindly requesting:
- a working Rex-cavator
- [standing] trees that need a good choppin'
- sunchoke tubers, comfrey rootlets, seeds of nitrogen fixers
- a cold house (or houses)
- hungry mouths to feed
- kitchen scraps to dump
- dull chainsaws
- some bowsaws
- places needing three-log benches
- places to put up firewood


Probably more. What's the best way for me to get you more/updated info?

Thanks Jen!  I can't think of anything that would need to be ordered.  I bet the RMHs will get a workout that week.  A working (and available) Rex would be very important.

Ash and I also want a garbage can of feces if that can be arranged.   Maybe others do too?

Do you guys have black locust seeds?  I need to plant 50 while I'm there.  I can seek some out here but if you have a bucket full, I can save some time.

Having hugel locations figured out for us would be great.  I'm guessing you already do around the Abbey.  Ash and I want to do 12 footers, I'm guessing everyone else wants to do the 6' pyramid hugels.  I believe we can extend existing ones if that works better for your plans.

Some of the odd things I'd like to try to do are:
- sharpen the sawmill if that's practical
- peen/sharpen a scythe
- demonstrate use of category 1 and 2 sleeves on a tractor (whatever the heck that means)

Oh, one other thing that would be great to have but likely impossible for you to get is a chunk of straight grained cedar or other shingle wood.  I don't need to split shakes but other folks might.  Last time there wasn't any suitable wood species on site so if Beau or Opalyn or anyone else who's coming (in a vehicle) can bring some wood, that would allow some folks to get that BB.  The shakes need to be 20" long and 6" wide so a 14" plus diameter hunk would do it.  I think cedar, oak, fir and a few other straight grained woods will do the trick.

So the event is monday the 19th to friday the 23rd.  

I know that ashley cannot come due to the border being closed.  And this all started with ashley wanting to come here to hang out for a week or two.  :)  

Mike and ash:  I'm pretty sure you are both gonna be here a bit early.  It seems that that would be a good time to explore spots for:

  - 3 log benches
  - new hugelkultur
  - scaffolding
  - dropping trees
  - firewood racks
  - chop and drop
  - ruth stout composting

... ??

Yup, I'm arriving in Missoula Sat at noon thirty so we can do some planning on Sat and Sunday.  If it makes sense for Ash or me to start a hugel on Sunday so that there's less of an excavator bottleneck, that's an option.

For Opalyn and Beau:

Relative to Paul's list, which, if any, of these are you going to want to do:
 - 3 log benches
 - building hugelkultur
 - add a log to scaffolding
 - dropping trees
 - making firewood racks
 - chop and drop
 - Ruth Stout composting

 - 3 log benches - low priority but I'm interested - doing this one will help develop my joinery skills
 - building hugelkultur - YES
 - add a log to scaffolding - yes
 - dropping trees with BOWSAW (am skilled with a chainsaw - have a 14-in tree on the ground that I need to peel)
 - making firewood racks - maybe
 - chop and drop - no, finished bb
 - Ruth Stout composting - yes

Things I am most interested in are all the ROCKET sand bb including cook rice(I can bring some) with a rocket and hay box!.  Next comes the long list of interests that my limited knowledge says might be easier to do at WL: Earthmoving, Grey Willow, Natural Building, woodland shakes, the water filter Plumbing BB, and the Textile TWINE if nettles are available and workable.  The twine BB is the last BB for my sand Textile so I'd like to do it if possible - I can actually make the twine after the event as I'm staying as a SEPPer for a week.

I plan to look at our stumps for shake making.  I have large enough fir stump (bucked log) but it is 5 years old.  I could locate an oak and cut it but it would be fresh.  The fir that I cut last week might be big enough - is it too fresh?  Many of our logs are 3-7 years old or have been bucked shorter than 20" so I'll have to look.  Any suggestions are welcome on what I can bring to help with projects.

I believe fresh log chunks are best for shakes but I'm not positive about that.

Which plumbing filter BB are you interested in?  That may require some advance planning and purchasing.

There is a lot that everybody wants to accomplish.
If these are feasible - I don't want you guys to go buy stuff!
- put collected water through a Berkey filter
- make a water filter
- make a simple sand filter

I watched the video and it seemed like super fresh is not desirable and several (or more) years is too old.

Maybe I can bring some that are fresh and they will be ready for the PTJ and SKIP events next summer.

I split two year old western red cedar (full of knots) with hatchets instead of a froe. It wasn't pretty. But, if I could manage it, I'm sure people could actually do it with good wood and the correct tool.

my basic technique...except I held the mallet the right way! But, who am I to say, 'No'


(Waaait, did I actually make enough shingles to get the shingles BB? ...I hadn't realized I'd actually made some that big, hahaha!)

I don't know if they have a Berkey there.  If they do, that one's easy.  They'd very likely have to buy stuff for you to make a filter but the parts probably exist to make a simple sand filter.  I think.

Thanks for bringing wood, we'll give it a shot and if not, save it for next year.  I plan to bring some cedar blanks to the SKIP event next summer since I'll be driving and my friend has a few semi loads of cedar.

I’m coming with a load of stuff from Eric on the 17th, so hopefully there will be places to unload. We can sort that out on the other thread though. If there will be room after Eric’s stuff, I have standing dead Eastern Red Cedar that I can bring - actually a juniper - that should be suitable for shakes. I can perhaps bring a couple logs. Would be good to pursue the shakes bb.

I’d like to do some metal working if possible. Ambitiously, I’d love to make a kindling cracker, and maybe another half pointer to get the badge, like chicken cone or solar cooker. I’ll look around the old shed here for metal pieces that may be suitable for a kindling cracker.

I’d love to get some excavator time, and build a hugel, at least the small one. I wouldn’t mind working ahead by building a large one if possible.

I plan to build a hugel scaffold to finish my roundwood sand badge.

It’d be cool to also do Ruth stout compost. It takes us a while to stockpile that much.

Then I might as well chop and drop to finish the garden sand badge.

Natural building sand bbs would be cool.

I’d also like to interact with as many rocket stoves and mass heaters as well.

I don’t need to fell trees, but I can if it’s helpful.

Willow feeder wheelie bin bb’s would be good, as there’s no ready way to do that bb off the base.

I’m holding all this loosely, and am prepared to go with the flow.

For clarity and brevity, here’s my highest interest:
Shakes
Kindling Cracker
Build a hugel
Hugel scaffold
Natural building bbs
Rocket bbs
Willow wheelie bin bbs

Anything else is icing on the cake.
I don’t need to build a 3 log bench, and can take or leave the Ruth stout and chop n drop.

That would be excellent!  We can try some green with the fro this year.  And some dry(er) next year and see how they compare.
