Great advice from Fidgetbones and Raisingirl. If the soil is too wet when you fill the beds it may compact together, better to leave it until it's more friable.
Don't worry about trying to get it all done in one go. Give yourself a 3 or 5 year plan. In that time you should be able to get a good compost system on the go.
If you know of any tree surgeons you might be able to get some free wood chips for constructing paths. This will help divide up the plot making it seem more manageable.
