Green Map System, the award-winning 13-year old non-profit that supports a global community mapping movement, is now building a social mapping website to significantly expand the promotion of green living resources worldwide.
The Open Green
Map will invite visitors to add their own commentary, ratings, images
and videos to each natural, cultural and sustainability site charted on
the map, in any language.
The impacts will also be collected, so everyone can assess how each site, pathway and resource is changing the habits of people and communities.
Think Global, Map Local!
"Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a relatively new socio-economic model of food production, sales, and distribution aimed at both increasing the quality of food and the quality of care given the land, plants and animals – while substantially reducing potential food losses and financial risks for the producers. It is also a method for small-scale commercial farmers and gardeners to have a successful, small-scale closed market. CSA’s focus is usually on a system of weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables."
