The Camberville Green Map aims to produce thorough
greenmaps of Cambridge and Somerville Massachusetts. A greenmap plots the
locations of environmentally and culturally significant resources e.g.;
recycling centers, toxic waste sites, public art, community gardens and
socially conscious businesses. The green map initiative was created by
Green Map System, Inc.
as a means of public education.
I finally replaced the scan of the Greater Boston region of the MassGrown map with the copy that includes farm details. I prepared this in September but forgot to post it! Sorry about the 9 month delay.
Have a look around or read the full submitted draft
of the article with sample map.
Jerrad Pierce was recently interviewed about the Cambridge Green Map and
