Sites to complete PEP badges

I’m not sure exactly where to post this, maybe there is already a thread I missed...
It seems to me that one big issue with PEP is that a lot of the badges require access to land, trees, etc. a lot of people who really want to be doing PEP will likely not own land. So, can we get a list of places where landowners are open to having someone come and complete a BB?

I will start: we have 5 acres, partially wooded, in Maryland, USA, near Annapolis. We are just getting started on it. In the next few years, we will be planting lots of stuff, felling some trees, digging some ponds, probably ripping some boards with an Alaskan saw mill, putting in fences, building a shed, building a rocket stove, building a rocket mass heater, and probably other stuff as well. At least some of it should fit into the BBs that have been established. So, if you live an easy distance from Annapolis md and want to complete a BB that you don’t have the space for, PM me and maybe we can schedule a time for you to come and complete a few of them. I don’t pretend to be an expert in any of this stuff, but I can muddle through most things.

We also have 5 acres, mainly open field, While most BB's are not completable here due to it being such a different area we could also offer some things such as live tree felling (both bowsaw and chain) Also we have plenty of sycamore for making roundwood items etc. Other things might be possible I've not read all the lists, but if anyone wanted to come clean my gutters I would never complain! :p

Dave Burton started a thread on this a while back:

https://permies.com/wiki/97759/Locations-PEP-PEX

I would like to keep all of the discussion in one place (to make it easier for people to find) so I'm going to lock this thread with the hopes that the two of you will happily continue the discussion in the original thread. Maybe copy some of what you've written here into that thread.

Thanks for taking the initiative to move this forward!
