"Food: An Atlas" a crowd-sourced, crowd-funded cartography project led by UC Berkeley professor Darin Jensen is looking to bring the Compost Green Map of Manhattan to a new, global audience!
"Food: An Atlas" is a collection of food related maps. It will feature Green Map System's Compost Map alongside maps about America's beershed and the global almond trade, as noted in this Atlantic article. Green Maps's newest project associate, Aaron Reiss, was excited to help adapt the map's layout for publication in this book - as a food and map enthusiast himself, Aaron spent much of his time at Yale mapping hidden food gems in New Haven.
Since composting creates the rich soil to needed to cultivate healthy local produce, it's a great way to 'close the loop' in this new book. Food: An Atlas is gaining national attention and is currently seeking crowd-funding on Kickstarter and have already raised $18,000 of their $20,000 goal. Help this project make its goal!
PS - The kickstarter is a success and this project fully funded! Congrats to Darin and the 100 contributors and editors in this exciting project!
