The architect, the mail courier, the politician and the student all begin their days with breakfast. It is difficult to identify any human enterprise that isn’t connected in some way to the food system. The CU Biomimicry Club hosts this workshop to explore our current food system and how it could benefit from nature inspired mutualism and systems thinking. We will first review the tenets of biomimicry and then use biomimicry as a framework to help design new ideas and systems. Presented by Elliot Kesrgaard, Ted Thayer, Elena Hansen, Fraser Dominic and Braeden Miguel.
