Do you have any burning questions or nagging curiosities for the boots? Anything specific you’d like to know about the experience here at Wheaton Labs, some of our projects or the boots themselves?
This is a place to submit any questions you may have, large and small, to be answered by the boots and get to know us a little better :)
It will be part of a (hopefully) weekly-ish video series where I will offer a question to my fellow boots and record their responses.
I can come up with my own questions, but it seems much more fun to engage with the community this way and to find out what it actually is that others might want to know.

I believe all the boots are responsible for cooking their own food using staple food that's supplied.  I see lots of group meals though.  How many meals are individual vs group efforts?  I'm assuming it's a mix and may vary from month to month but some discussion of that might be helpful for prospective boots.

I'm really looking forward to these videos!

Here's something I've wondered: Where's different Boots' favorite places on Wheaton Labs.

Some more questions: What are Boots' favorite things to do in their spare time?

Would anyone be willing to give a tour of their plot and their dreams for it and why they chose it?

How do you manage shower times, morning bathroom times, etc, especially in the winter?

Are there any dogs around? I see a lot of pictures of cats at the bootcamp. Also, any of the boots making or want to make tempeh, sauerkraut, kimchi, miso or other ferment things?

Those are great questions! And sounds like they would be fun to video thanks Nicole

Thanks T :) I think these are things many wonder about, so it would be good to cover it for them!
