Fungi Academy is a creative mushroom training center and educational co-living space at Lake Atitlán, Guatemala.
Mushrooms are our inspiration to cultivate a symbiotic relationship between ourselves, our community and the ecosystem of our planet.
We seek to empower people to learn how to grow mushrooms. Fungi are used for much more than just food. They can help us to regenerate soil, filter water, clean up chemical pollution, grow medicine and expand consciousness.
We believe Fungi and Mushrooms play a fundamental role in healing ourselves, the global community and our planet as a whole.
That’s why we created Fungi Academy, an alliance between humans and fungi that inspires to live in balance with one another and the environment.
We consider the Balance of Life to be sacred. Fungi is an elder species on Earth that helps us to find this balance inside ourselves and in the world around us. Sustainability and living in symbiosis with nature are fundamental for our lifestyle.
