About our Teaching Training program

Hands-on Mushroom Cultivation Experience

With this program we will make sure you establish a solid foundation by starting you off with our 6-day mushroom cultivation course followed by our 4-week apprenticeship program and an additional 2 months of practice as a resident teacher here at Fungi Academy.

You will become an adept in mushroom cultivation through experience. We directly apply every element of our course with hands-on work. By training to share your mushroom cultivation skills with others, you become an empowered center of positive change, and  turn knowledge into wisdom.

Grow Mushrooms for a Variety of Uses

You will discover how to grow your own mushrooms for food, medicine, gardening and so much more. Receive the empowering support of living in a conscious permaculture community.

Get Experience as a Teacher

In no time, you will be helping to facilitate our weekly workshops to build your teaching experience and become a community leader. By the end, you will be ready to co-teach the 6-day mushroom course you started with.

Be Ready to Start Your Teaching Business

Besides learning all about fungiculture we will also guide you building your business as a mushroom teacher. You will learn how to set up your own course material, how to promote your own events and let your wisdom sustain your lifestyle. 

Together we will spread the mycelial-network of fungal empowerment across the globe. At Fungi Academy, you can become a part of strengthening the symbiosis between humanity and Fungal Kingdom.
