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

In this Badge Bit you will build a small Oehler style greenhouse (<100 square feet)!

For more information, read The Earth Sheltered Solar Greenhouse by Mike Oehler.

(source: Natural Building Blog)

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - less than 100 square feet
  - generally follow the guidelines in Mike's book

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must: provide proof of the following as pictures or a video (< 2 mins):
 - the site before building the greenhouse
 - the materials and equipment used for building the greenhouse
 - after excavation
 - posts in place
 - shoring in place
 - partway through building the greenhouse
 - finished small Mike Oehler style greenhouse (<100 square feet)
