Mushroom Education Center in Central America
Fungi Academy is mushroom education center, a creative and educational co-living space, nestled in the hills above the mystical Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.
We believe Fungi and Mushrooms play a fundamental role in healing ourselves, the global community and our planet Earth as a whole. For us, Fungi is an “elder species” that is helping humanity to become more mature, responsible and conscious.
That’s why we created Fungi Academy, an alliance between humans and fungi, that inspires us to live in balance with each other and our environment.
Open Source Mushroom Cultivation
Here in Guatemala, we established a symbiosis between a mushroom school and an intentional community, where (amateur) mycologist, permaculturist, travellers from all around the world and local/indigenous people can peacefully live and learn together.
We work to make mushroom education accessible and easy. Be it for food, medicine, ecological restoration, permaculture design, or consciousness exploration.
We are doing this by holding Immersive 6-day Mushroom Cultivation Courses every first Sunday of the month and weekly 1-day workshops in applied mycology. As a result, we have taught hundreds of locals and travelers from around the world how to grow their own mushrooms.
Additionally our Fungibus is spreading mushroom cultivation knowledge throughout Central America as a mobile teaching unit
