Database access questions


Hey OpenAg community!

I am currently in the process of building one of these Food Computers, but right now I am at a bit of a stand still(I need some additional cash)

While I wait for the available funds to finish this project I have a few questions that I am interested in.

Is there data already being collected and stored on the DB?
If so, is there any kind of API that would allow me to easily access this Data?
If not am I able to collect the data from the DB myself right now? I would like to do some visualizations, and maybe build some predictive models, but I am not exactly sure if this is possible just yet, or if it is, where I would go to get the data I need.

I am very interested in the data science aspect of this project, but I could use some help being pointed in the right direction.
