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

This BB requires you to add ash from a rocket mass heater to a garden (light dusting). You are not required to build your own rocket mass heater, but access to one is required.

Some threads on wood ash:
  - Uses for Wood Ash
  - Urine and Wood Ash Restore Soil
  - Managing Acidic Soils

Benefits of Using Wood Ash



To get certified for this Badge Bit you must provide:
  - pic of labeled area before ash
        - we want diversity for our garden, so some areas get ash and most don't.  Label where there are areas that do get ash to monitor the results.
  - and another pic after ash
 
when your children are suffering from your punishment, tell your them it will help them write good poetry when they are older. Like this tiny ad:
