RESIDENTS AT FUNGI

Residents are an integral part of the Fungi Academy community. We welcome anyone looking to experience an intentional community setting that utilizes the principles of permaculture to build and grow. At Fungi Academy, there are always tasks on-the-go in our garden/nursery, kitchen, and general maintenance/building tasks around the property. Residents will also have the opportunity to learn more about fungi and mushroom cultivation with complementary access to our Wednesday workshop and ad-hoc workshops held throughout the week. If you have an interest in Fungi, permaculture, and community living and want to learn more about our resident program at the Academy, keep reading below and then contact us by completing the Application Form below. We would love to hear from you!

WHAT TO EXPECT

Residents at the Fungi Academy work 2 hours each day for 5 days of the week as per the community schedule – typically Monday to Friday however days and times are subject to change during special events or courses taking place. 

You can expect a portion of your time to be devoted towards the basic tasks that are required to keep the community running (cooking, cleaning, etc.) and the majority of time is focused on current projects (food forest, property building and maintenance, etc.). We do our best to match you with the tasks that reflect your interests and/or skills. In exchange, you will be provided accommodation 2 communal meals Monday to Saturday and 1 communal meal on Sunday with access to the kitchen on evenings and weekends. All this combined with an awesome community setting complemented by our super luxurious jungle home that includes a sauna, hot showers and many other treasures!

Our goal is to provide all residents with a valuable and unforgettable experience, meeting all your needs while furthering the vision of the Fungi Academy project.

If at any point during your stay you would like more time off, you are welcome to transfer to Guest status for a day or few at the Guest rate. You can also find out more information about being a Guest and other topics on our FAQ page

 

MINIMAL STAY AND COST

We ask that residents to stay with us for a minimum of one month (4 weeks) at a cost of 75Q per day. This cost covers all your needs, including communal food, utilities (including electricity, clean water, and Wifi), and other supplies we share for living and working together.

We ask that residents arrive on a Sunday to allow you the time to settle and begin fresh with us on a Monday morning with our weekly morning meeting. You will also receive a welcoming community tour and orientation.
