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

In this Badge Bit you will move a willow feeder can to a willow tree.

Here are some threads on the larger context of willow feeders and poop beasts:
 - Tree Bog vs Dry Outhouse
 - The First Willow Feeder
 - Willow Feeder #3 - Willow Wonka
 - Willow Bank
 - Poop Beasts

Here are a couple videos about willow feeders and how they work!




To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - move one willow feeder can to a willow tree
      - must be in the spring when the tree is in heavy growth
      - under the tree, but not touching the trunk
      - cover with lots of wood chips

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must post:
 - a picture of the willow feeder can (lid on) before being emptied under the willow tree (can near tree)
 - an after picture of the empty (and clean) willow feeder can and the area where the can was emptied (now with wood chips)
 - OR a 2-minute video of you doing the above
 
It would give a normal human mental abilities to rival mine. To think it is just a tiny ad:
