Shawn and I are about to record another podcast and all of the patreon peeps are invited to join us.   If you pop onto patreon now, then you will see the devious plot!  This will be a video thing and a podcast thing

I remember reading something once about a natural building co-op.   The idea is that you help with the full build of six houses, and then it is your turn:  six people will help with the build of your house.

I think it would be funny to have two totally different characters there.   Deeply compound the dilemma.   Maybe an accountant and an artist?

A sand badge might be made of 6 BBs (Badge Bits).  

Soon, I hope to start creating all the BB threads - one for each BB.  And I hope to do all the BBs myself (or maybe somebody will beat me to it) to start filling all of this out.

I think that in many ways, this will be the true birth of PEP1.  

Three years from now, I hope that we will offer three PEP1 courses each year, and folks will pay something like $1800 for the two week course.   Maybe three years after that, there will be 20 places that will offer PEP1 courses and maybe a few that will do something PEX1 that is not PEP1.  

Hopefully, at the end of this course, most of the students will end up with a PEP1 certification.   And the few that don't will have just a few tiny things they can do at home to finish up.

Along the way, we should be able to refine the requirements for PEP1.  And each badge.  And each BB.  

Basic food staples will be provided.  But the students will need to cook for themselves and clean up after themselves.

Hi Adam!

It looks like you put in $1 to the kickstarter.  And it looks like that stuff is in your "my stuff" here at permies.  To get the physical DVD, you would need to have supported the kickstarter at a higher level.
