This sounds extremely impressive!  I have two general questions, for when 
you have time to respond:

1) How was this financed/funded?  What "invisible structures" facilitated 
your original installation and now the ongoing maintenance?

2) How are you planning to use the outputs, particularly of about 1.5 acres 
of garden beds?

Thanks in advance,
