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 candy warehouse.



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 candy warehouse
       - add two inches of sawdust to the top before moving it
       - write on can "sealed on ____ do not open until _____" (two years later)
       - replace with an empty can
           - at least three inches of sawdust and/or wood chips in the bottom
           - ventilator on side of can

Provide proof of the following as pics or video (<2 min):
 - The sawdust on top of the full can before the lid goes on
 - A close up view of the new label
 - The full can being placed in the warehouse
 - The fresh can showing the sawdust in the bottom and the ventilator

I see two different cans and two different people--did you each do a can? If so, I think I can certify this!

Yes, we each did one can! The handwriting on each bin is different as well, if this helps. Thank you:)

I helped move a full can of willow candy to the Willow Candy Warehouse today.

Here's an image of the full can:



Here's an image of me affixing the new label, as well as a closeup, indicating it may be opened two years from now.





Here's me leaving the Willow Candy Warehouse after adding a can to it.



Here's a can ready to go into the Willow Bank.



Thanks, volunteer reviewers!
