CURVE hosts American Ecological Engineering Society

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

On Tuesday, May 24, 2011, the American Ecological Engineering Society came calling to CURVE studios & garden. Thanks to Mitch Woodward & Jason Zink of NC State Ag & Bio, CURVE has a newly installed “WaterWall” cistern system. Mitch Woodward brought all the gear up on his trailer & he and Pattiy spent the past 4 days making ready. Mitch then did his pitch about how the system works here and can work for these folks when they go back home… Very informative.
