Special | 5m 9s | Video has closed captioning.

Katy Ayers made a canoe - out of mushrooms. More specifically, she used mycelium, the unseen, vegetative body of a fungus that forms mushrooms. Ayers is part of what some call a “fungal revolution.” Around the world, people are using mycelium to create a wide range of items like lampshades, flowerpots, and keychains. Mycelium is naturally occurring, easily reusable, and biodegradable.
