Spirulina Society Says Grow it at Home

 Seagriculture EU 2024

The Spirulina Society is a project that intends to normalize the sustainable and efficient spirulina cultivation system for an urban lifestyle where people produce their own food maintain a state of well-being that includes cutting down waste and reducing their ecological footprint.

The Society, the brainchild of designer and spirulina enthusiast Anya Muangkote, provides access to open-source tools and knowledge for domestic spirulina cultivation. 3D models of the cultivation tools are available for people to download digitally and connect with local manufacturers to produce the parts. The 3D printed collection consists of lids and harvesting funnels that can be fitted with locally and readily available containers.

The equipment list and information on how to get the tools, how to set up harvest, and other useful tips are available on the website.
