    Proposal summary:

    We want to retrofit a used golf cart so that it will be powered by photovoltaic modules carried on its roof. We would then like to use the cart for on-farm transportation of tools, materials and berries, so as to reduce our use of a jeep, tractor and pick-up truck, all of which are powered by polluting and gaz-guzzling internal combustion engines.
