There is an PEP Badge: Odd

There are no specific tasks for these badges.   This badge is for unpredictable projects or creative solutions that aren't covered by existing BBs.



This is for things you want to do and projects you need to do.

For this Badge:

https://permies.com/wiki/111580/pep-nest/Oil-Kitchen-Woods-PEP-BB

These are the requirements:


Minimum requirements:
 - You must oil at least 6 wooden utensils, cutting boards, bowls, etc.
      - Walnut oil is best
      - If allergic to nuts, explain your oil choice
      - Oil must be edible and not made from petroleum

Provide proof of the following as pictures or a video (<2 mins):
 - Wooden items in need of oiling
 - Action shot of you oiling one of the kitchen items
 - All the wooden kitchen items you oiled
 - Listing the type of oil you used. If other than walnut oil, please explain



If you don't own 6 wooden objects to oil do you know someone you could borrow some from?

Alexa said, "but some of the achievement requirements seem counter-productive.



These are PEP: Permaculture Experience according to Paul.

Maybe this will help:

Yes, maybe, yes and no.

Maybe you have a friend with wooden utensils?

If this is elsewhere, please let me know! (it may be but I'm not sure where to look...)

I was looking to earn points for fixing an existing piece of furniture. We have a nightstand whose drawer fell out because one of the supports collapsed so we picked up replacement parts rather than tossing it. Before I start the project, I'd love to see if I can earn some points for it!

That doesn't ring a bell for me but it could likely be an oddball submission

Not entirely sure this is exactly the right place to ask, so feel free to correct me.

I am wondering if certain aspects of the Nest badge are covered by running an Airbnb? I had an Airbnb room in my apartment for 2.5 years. I only stopped when I moved. The downside is, other than my reviews and the original ad, I don't have any pictures of the cleanliness of the apartment.

If this isn't enough, I best start on those dishes with a camera next to me!

Many aspects of cleaning up after an Airbnb guest could qualify for Nest BBs if the required pictures can be posted.  There might also be a Commerce BB that you could get IF you have the required proof...
 
This is awkward. I've grown a second evil head. I'm going to need a machete and a tiny ad ...
