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:


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?
