Thanks Everyone!  It's been quite the journey.  I'd say it took about 18 months but I definitely didn't plan out the straightest path to get there the quickest.  I just did all the BBs I could and with the BB20 event was able to get some of the trickier ones knocked out.  You can do it too

Do the requirements listed above for this certification need to be updated to include the BBV requirement mentioned at Badge-Bit-Verifications-BBVs?

BBV price: 1
Note: Sorry John, this is the thread for when you get to PEP1.  BB10, BB20 and those style of badges are now automatically granted and it looks like the system granted it to you already.

 
And now I present magical permaculture hypno cards. The idea is to give them to people that think all your permaculture babble is crazy talk. And be amazed as they apologize for the past derision, and beg you for your permaculture wisdom. If only there were some sort of consumer based event coming where you could have an excuse to slip them a deck ... richsoil.com/cards
