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
No more fooling around. Read this tiny ad:
