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:
2800Q per month (4 weeks). Or 150Q per day if you wish to participate in the program less then a month.
Q is Guatemalan quetzals – GTQ. 1 USD is around 7.5 Q
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.
Perishable lab items that you will need for your research can be ordered affordably through Fungi Academy. If you have specific extra supplies you need for your study or research then please let us know, we might be able to source it locally. Find the list of perishable lab items below.
