Very cool. I'm all about skoolies, and all about helping people. Nice to see people helping a skoolie that helps people.
Later next year I'll be touring around the country visiting various permaculture oriented intentional communities to volunteer my time and take video about what they're doing. Then at some point I'll try to compress all that footage down to 90 minutes. I'd love to do a segment on what you're doing should we cross paths. Though I'm not sure if I'll be making it to texas.
Anyway, good luck with your build, hope you can achieve your goals, they are indeed noble.
