hi Mapmakers,

Today, the 21st, is the 15th anniversary of the very first Green Map event here in NYC! And Sunday the 25th is the 12th anniversary of global Green Map movement - how fitting that we'll start the beta test of the Greenhouse tomorrow (assuming all goes well) and, hopefully, get back great comments and have the it all ready for you to add your Mapmaker and Map profiles around April 15. We hope you all can add content within a month, so when it launches publicly on May 30, it will have lots of wonderful maps, images, stories and resources on view!

Thanks to everyone who has already helped or will take part in the beta-test of the Greenhouse's content management system -- do let us know if you want to be a beta-tester (with comments due by April 2) or a translator (longer time frame)...

We're all working really hard here, so I will keep this short. Thanks to all in the office here too!

Nice fresh article here about Missoula Montana US's Green Map
and a cool video on the Jerusalem Green Map

All the best, Wendy

but I say, it was just the opposite."
