GO GREEN pamphlets
6 years ago
From Eric Garcetti, Council President
GO GREEN on Earth Day

The City of Los Angeles has many resources to help Angelenos live and work in a more environmentally-sustainable manner. The Department of Public Works, Department of Water and Power, and other city agencies operate programs to help residents and businesses go green and save money.

I have created a series of GO GREEN pamphlets to provide a one-stop source of information for multiple city programs administered by multiple agencies.


Copies of the GO GREEN series can be found in English and Spanish on my website:
I hope you will find them useful!

Social Mapping for Sustainable Community Development

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
7 years ago

"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."

Craig's list is mostly stuff for sale, rather than free, so (hopefully) it's better quality stuff. Find links to the California pages here.
