Mushroom Cultivation Course

Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

About This Event

With this intensive mushroom cultivation course we give you all the hands-on experience and knowledge you need to grow your own mushrooms successfully. Most importantly, we will help you understand the cultivation process, through practical examples from our own grow operation.

This unique course gives you the hands on experience to grow your own mushrooms for food and medicine and will get you started immediately.

Learn mushroom cultivation, medicine making, foraging, gardening with fungi and so much more. All while living in an intentional permaculture community that is located above the mystical Lake Atitlan. During the time of the course, you will be welcomed to live here as a community member and you will feel home and inspired with your new fungi family.

Get the hands-on experience and mentoring you need. Enjoy rich and diverse lectures and be amazed by the social and natural beauty around you. 

We are looking forward to see you soon!

About The Venue

About The Venue

Fungi Academy

Guatemala

The course is happening in Fungi Academy, an intentional community fueled mushroom training center. Our mission is to empower conscious leadership through sharing the wisdom of mushrooms and community building.

During the time of the course, you will be welcomed to live here as a community member.

Along one of the most beautiful lakes in the world lies a little indigenous Mayan town called San Marcos la Laguna. We are a small hike up the hill away from distractions, but close enough to take a trip to town anytime.

P.S. Once you have finished this course it is possible to stay and live in the Fungi Academy as an Apprentice, Guest or Volunteer.
