 Curtiss was the Urban Green Coordinator in 2009. He is in charge of Elsewhere’s Urban Green program, as well as Elsewhere’s Back Alley Garden. Aside from encouraging more efficient uses of natural and material resources at Elsewhere, Curtiss also coordinates collaborative relationships with community gardens, local farmers, academic institutions and like-minded organizations in the Triad area. Curtiss hails from Waynesville, North Carolina, a delightful little town in the hills of Haywood County. He has a diverse background in organic farming, medicinal plants, new media production and clean technology consulting. Outside of contributing to Elsewhere’s many successes, Curtiss is interested in permaculture systems design, appropriate biotechnology and all sorts of weird ideas having to do with water.
