As Spring settles in, good news! Our new set of Local Food Icons is ready to use. Just in time for the growing season (in the northern hemisphere), there are 60 icons for Growing, Eating, Enterprise and Specialty local food.

Find a backgrounder at GreenMap.org/localfood, where you will find everything you need to make a print map, experience, presentation, signage, etc. Great examples - both interactive and print - are linked there. The set of Local Food Icons are already installed on our mapping platform. Click an icon to compare how different places highlight the eco and social benefits of local food.

Get started on mapping your food scene this season!! We’re just getting started in NYC over Earth Day weekend, and you can use our QR codes to explore or add to this NYC food-flavored Green Map made on our mapping platform. Our thanks to Green Mapmakers and to you for your support.

Congratulations to two Green Map projects on new publications:

• Dr. Bidart and colleagues at Felix Varela Center have created new Mapa Verde Red workbooks that guide projects across Cuba, shown below by Ms. Felsten, Baltimore Green Mapmaker.

• Kudos also go to Ms. Trevett and colleagues at Scotland’s Coalfields Regeneration Trust - their new Gorebridge Place Plan and contributions to the national Place Plans Programme are stellar! Take a peek at their slideshow, linked below, and watch for our blog post with more details soon.

Upcoming Event! Jane’s Walk May 5, 3PM

Stroll Avenue C – the heart of Loisaida – with three community leaders: an international mapmaker, an urban anthropologist, and a spoken word poet for an ‘inside’ intro to the visual arts, music, architecture, gardens and foodways that have blossomed along Avenue C.

This will be a bi-lingual Spanish / English tour, and it’s the first foray of a new way to experience our neighborhood. Look for us at the Loisaida Festival on Avenue C on the afternoon of May 26th, too! RSVP link below, and watch for updates here
