I have been volunteering at Eden's CSA farm and she has a fundraiser at Indiegogo. She has a 7+ minute video on the link. Sorry I don't know how to imbed video.

This is a one woman farm and she has a horticulture background, had an organic garden center, became organic farmer and is now turning to permaculture. She made a comment " I wish I had known about permaculture 10 years ago. The farm would look much different than it does today." Using solar to irrigate from a pond, honeybees from the Honeybee Guild,yurt classroom, wild-crafting nature walks, consulting, helps other small growers/gardeners, chickens, ducks, horses(2), CSA farm, farmers market on 1st 3rd and 5th Saturdays, etc.
