Join DATTA Vic and NGV at the very last Online Teach Meet of the year and discover how myco-cycling can tackle the problem of plastic waste - and how it's happening right here in Melbourne!
We'll be joined by Amanda Morgan, founder and Head of Research and Development at the multi-award-winning Fungi Solutions, who'll share how their work with this amazing natural organism diverts resources from landfill to sequester carbon, creates new materials and generates economic opportunities.
With an extensive background in prototyping, Amanda now works closely with clients at Fungi Solutions to develop refined mycelium solutions for their products. She brings expertise in innovative social and environmental programs and an enthusiasm for helping others to get involved with cultivating fungi. With initial focus on the development of a targeted recycling program, using the material by-product from the process as circular packaging, Amanda has developed a range of targeted mycelium strains for the remediation of pollutants and the production of Mycomaterials (alternatives to single use plastics, animal by-products and timber milled products).
Remember to bring along your glass of wine, bottle of beer or cup of chamomile and together we'll celebrate the end of 2022!
