Once we get a full time event coordinator, I think this will be something that we offer quarterly.

But the bottom line is that we can no longer just give a tour to anybody that comes by.  If we do a quickie tour, it can be done in five hours.  But a full tour with answering lots of questions, takes two days.

And we are understaffed.  

So we now offer this:  a quickie tour (five hours) for $250.   We will pass $150 of this on to a resident to give the tour.

Once we have an event coordinator, we can do a lot more.

What about a video tour? I learned LOADS from Geoff Lawton's farm tour.

There is a 5 hour video tour that was taken as part of the 2017 PDC and ATC courses. We are talking about having it as one of many rewards for our upcoming kickstarter.
 
We don't have time for this. We've gotta save the moon! Or check this out:
