Alicia Dudek is the founding fungi fanatic at MycoReality, a mycelium inspired conversations firm. From learning how to grow mushrooms in your own backyard, to envision a future where every object we produce has fungi in its lifecycle, she is keen on transforming our way of life into a true MYCOREALITY. Alicia’s passion for mushrooms is a part of her heritage and upbringing, and throughout her life, she has collected knowledge from a great number of teachers. She is here to share her story and discuss how we can collaborate more closely with fungi for our mutual benefit.
