You may recall that in October, 2009 the Flowerdale Community won a Groundswell Award, from Forrester Research, for Best Use of Social Media for Social Impact. Flowerdale was the first group outside North America to ever win one of these awards.
The award acknowledged the use of the Blog, Flickr, Youtube, Scribd and the Flowerdale Wiki as well as www.builditback.org , the step by step rebuilding guide.
The Award was picked up in Chicago by a Deloite colleague of mine in October but only landed on my desk this week having been in the ether of the mail system for some time.
