Community-generated data helps citizens coordinate and collaborate on environmental stewardship initiatives. The tools can be as simple as tape measures, scales, and a bit of code. This workshop goes into depth about three current NYC-based citizen science projects related to food justice and environmental stewardship. Following the talk, we will go an outdoor tree mapping excursion that will help build a set of tools for volunteers in central Brooklyn with TreeKIT co-founder Philip Silva and Food Census co-founder Mara Gittleman.
