ABOUT OUR INDEPENDENT STUDY PROGRAM

Do you want to be a part of something that will allow you to expand and explore your educational path? Fungi Academy has the environment for you to do just that.


Here nestled between volcanoes and next to one of the most beautiful lakes in the world you will find an intentional community and a mushroom school.


We have a functional lab and professional equipment mainly used for all things mycology. But we are also open to other fields of study and research like environmentalism, permaculture, community building, herbalism, natural medicine and whatever else is focused on the benefit of all.


Independent study program gives you full access to our lab and study facilities without accommodation and food.

 

 

This includes access to:
  • mycology lab with all of its equipment. Find lab equipment list below.
  • library and study space with desktop computers
  • yoga platform with mats, meditation benches and an awesome view to the lake and volcanoes
  • well equipped communal kitchen
  • Wif

COST

2800Q per month (4 weeks). Or 150Q per day if you wish to participate in the program less then a month.

Accommodation can be found here via the Residency Program and in town just below us – San Marcos la Laguna. Residency program gives you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the Fungi Academy experience by living together with like-minded people and being part of the community.
