For this BB, you will grow forage for chickens/pigs in a single paddock!

For this BB, the minimum requirements are:
     - at least 8 species, obviously more than 5000 calories
     - note that 15 pounds of sunchokes are 5000 calories

To document your completion, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):

     - demonstrate paddock is growing enough forage for the chickens/pigs
