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

In this Badge Bit, you will create an LIC (labor investment collective)!

- The Ithaca Hour: A Community Currency

The minimum requirements for this BB are:
 - create an LIC (labor investment collective)
 - 6 more points if the LIC lives on past your contributions
 - Requires understanding that there may be a large “flake out” factor
 - at least three artifacts are created (one for you)
    - Must be for a BB
 - Artifacts are relatively similar for each participant
 - at least six people participate
 - You put in at least 40 hours of work on the projects (in total)
 - BBs can be completed through a LIC
    - as long as you do all parts of the BB throughout the course of the LIC to show you have learned all the skills
    - Pics of each LIC site showing you’re doing all the tasks at some point
 - examples
    - each person contributes six months to helping others build homes and then gets back six months of people helping to build their home
    - each person contributes one month to helping others build a berm shed and gets back one month of others helping to build a berm shed
 - possible themes:
    - garden
    - wofati
    - berm shed
    - skiddable shed
    - fence
    - rocket mass heater

To document this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pictures or a video (<2 mins):
- create a permies thread documenting the creation and implementation of the LIC (must provide proof of meeting the above requirements)
