We do need help! PEP/SKIP is volunteer run, so we all try to do as much as we can in what spare time we have. We'd love to have you on the team!
Here's a quick overview on How to make a BB thread. You don't need to do it perfectly! In fact, most of us make a BB, and then someone with a bit more knoweldge comes along and tweaks it to fit Paul's vision. That's perfectly normal! But getting the BB made, you've really, really helped!
Once you make a BB thread, post a link to it here: PEPpers in Action, and someone will come along and look over it for you and make any tweaks that might be necessary.
Here's a good example of a Natural Medicine Badge Bit thread: Stinging Nettle Decoction. The format is good, though it looks like the journal entry proof no longer needs to be a part of each Natural Medicine BB's requirements.
What I usually do is click the quote button on a BB's first post and just copy the whole thing, and then I go and change the words and links, etc, to match the BB I'm working on.
I hope that helps! And thank YOU for helping with this!!!
Did I understand this right?
To receive a sand badge in natural medicine, I have to:
harvest, dry and store (at least) one of the herbs mentioned. And then create (at least) one infusion, one decoction, one tincture, one vinegar infusion, one oil infusion, one bottle of syrup or some gummies, a salve and a poultice.
"Also, just as you want men to do to you, do the same way to them" (Luke 6:31)
For the straw badge, one of the requirements is “ Complete 40 new BBs from the sand badge”. Do I keep submitting for BBs under Sand and then post the links to approved Sand BBs under straw when I hit 40, or do you want it done in some other manner?

The links become active by volunteers, like yourself(?) that make the BB pages. You can take a look at Nicole’s post above for more information on how. I just built two poultice BB pages today and posted them to the peppers in action thread for review. I know I’m staff now but I started making BB pages last fall when I had only earned about 20 BBs so if there’s is a BB you want to submit, then feel free to create the BB page.
