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

In this Badge Bit you will move a willow feeder can to a willow candy warehouse.



Here are some threads on the larger context of willow feeders and poop beasts:
 - Tree Bog vs Dry Outhouse
 - The First Willow Feeder
 - Willow Feeder #3 - Willow Wonka
 - Willow Bank
 - Poop Beasts

Here are a couple videos about willow feeders and how they work!




To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - move one willow feeder can to a willow candy warehouse
       - add two inches of sawdust to the top before moving it
       - write on can "sealed on ____ do not open until _____" (two years later)
       - replace with an empty can
           - at least three inches of sawdust and/or wood chips in the bottom
           - ventilator on side of can

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
 - a picture of the sawdust on top of the full can before the lid goes on
 - a picture of the full can sporting the new label
 - a picture of the full can being placed in the warehouse
 - a picture of the fresh can showing the sawdust in the bottom and the ventilator
 - OR a 2-minute video of you doing the above

Yes, we each did one can! The handwriting on each bin is different as well, if this helps. Thank you:)

It's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it!

New can with a thick layer of sawdust and vent, ready to handle a lot of "buisness".
