Review for Green Map System, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Green Map System is an unusually strong nonprofit in a crowded field. Wendy Brawer and Carlos Martinez made multiple site visits and gave presentations to help us launch our effort, pro bono! Wendy personifies open-source, informed and engaged leadership with her gentle demeanor and dogged commitment. The brand and vision are utterly consistent, and the quality of empowerment that Green Mapping brings to communities is high. We have been able to engage a regional leadership fellows program in completing our Green Map thanks to the care and quality of the platform created by Green Map Central.
