I just read this article on the state of Factor E farms
http://mobile.businessweek.com/articles/2012-11-01/the-post-apocalypse-survival-machine-nerd-farm It seems like Marchin could use some help. His farm started as a back to nature Eco-community. But since the goal has changed (though it be a noble goal as well) it seems some basic permaculture techniques have fallen off the list of priorities.
From what the article reports, everything is running off gasoline and all the food comes from Walmart.
Some PDC people could go by and help out.
Maybe he will give you one of his hand made Track Hoes.
