Here is my submission for the Earthworks - Sand - Three Scoops with an Excavator BB.

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
  - Your untouched soil and you in the excavator
  - Action pic of you dumping scoop #1
  - Action pic of you dumping scoop #2
  - Action pic of you dumping scoop #3

Penny, myself, Beau, and Mike teamed up to get our Hugelkulture and Earthworks BB at Allerton Abbey at Wheaton Labs during BB20 2020.

Finally reached one of the most anticipated parts of the PTJ, running the excavator. Josiah was an excellent teacher and got more than three scoops in the process of creating a hugelkultur bed.
