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

For this BB, you will demonstrate you can make at least $500 from your home by providing a service for people.

For purposes of this BB a cottage industry is where you do the work from your home, it's face to face and it's a service, not a transfer of goods.  Must include a tip of the hat to permaculture values

Some examples:
          - Renting out a cabin, tent site, etc.
          - Sewing repair, truck repair, etc.
          - Massage, counseling, etc.
          - Classes, workshops, etc.

To document your completion, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - A description of your work and how it's a cottage industry
  - You doing the work
  - Proof that you got paid $500 or more (you can smudge out the personal info, so long as it is identifiable as you)

note:  this could be several different activities/sessions that add up to $500 or more.
They worship nothing. They say it's because nothing lasts forever. Like this tiny ad:
