About.

We at Fungi Academy believe that symbiotic relationships with other humans and with all nature is the foundation individual and collective well-being.

That’s why we empower people to make the shift for a more fulfilling and regenerative lifestyle that honors all our relations.

We do this by sharing and developing the art of mushroom cultivation, community building and permaculture.

We hold weekly workshops, as well as 6-day immersive courses. Come learn to grow your own mushrooms with us; be it for food, regeneration, permaculture, or medicine.

There is much wisdom to be learned from the fungus among us. From Oysters to Psilocybe, we feel that mushroom cultivation is a potent global solution to some of the most important issues plaguing our planet today.

As a sustainable food source, a builder of healthy soil, a healer for damaged ecosystems and a powerful medicine for both body and mind, we believe that fungus is the key to a healthier, more unified world.

It is this vision of unity that serves as a model for the way we live, work, play and grow together.

Since our founding in January 2016, we have taught hundreds of locals and travelers from around the world how to grow their own mushrooms; be it for food, ecological restoration, enhancing permaculture design or consciousness exploration.

We are looking for people who are willing to fully invest in and co-create our collective reality.


VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

We live together in a beautiful yet simple 7 bedroom house, with plenty of extra camping and communal areas.

We ask for 5 hours of work exchange here, 5 days a week. The minimum stay is 1 month, preferably more. Especially if you want to get involved in the mushroom production you need at least 6-8 weeks.

We ask a daily contribution of 40Q which goes into high quality vegetarian food, electricity, internet and everything else we use communally.

Everyone who commits to volunteer here, for at least 1 month, gets to participate our one-day weekly mushroom growing workshop for free.


Come immerse yourself in the magical world of fungi, share, co-create and make authentic connections!
