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

For this BB, you will harvest five different plants from the Sand Fresh List.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- Harvest at least five plants from the Sand Fresh List

To document your completion of the BB, provide the following for each of the five plants:
- A picture of one of the plants the harvest came from
- A picture of the bounty on a scale showing the weight (or you have so much, there is no need to weigh it)

Clarifications:
- Apples from a neighbor don’t count here.  
- Apples from a homestead that has been abandoned for at least five years does count.  
- Apples oddly growing in a place where there has never been any cultivation counts too (probably a discarded apple core led to the tree).  
- Apples that are the result of guerilla gardening do count.

Do these 5 different species need to be in addition to whatever species we harvested for the sand BBs or can they be more of the same species? Am I correct in assuming we would at least need to harvest more of whatever species we foraged for sand for it to count here?

Coming back to try again to get some clarification in the requirements for this BB. I have already harvested five different species from the fresh list and submitted them under the Sand BB post. Can I link to those here to earn this BB or do I need to harvest 5 additional species?

Sorry Robin, just saw this.  This BB just got obsoleted.
