Eco-Mapping Project

By Ajamu Brown & Clarisa James & Sha Sha Feng & Alena Shurauka & DIVAS Students

Project Description
The Bed-Stuy Community Eco-Mapping Project-a grassroots initiative to highlight green activities in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. In November 2009, Ajamu was awarded a grant by TogetherGreen, a conservation leadership program cofunded by Toyota and the Audubon, to develop a community toolkit that would assist local residents in discovering their communities green assets. With the help of DIVAS for Social Justice, a local community-based program that trains youth in media skills, they have recorded several interviews with residents about gardening in Bed-Stuy.
