Mushrooms are our inspiration to cultivate a symbiotic relationship between ourselves, our community and the ecosystem of our planet.
We seek to empower people to learn how to grow mushrooms. There is much more than just growing fungi for food. Mushrooms can help us to regenerate soil, filter water, clean up chemical pollution, integrate it in permaculture systems, grow medicine and expand consciousness.
We believe Fungi and Mushrooms play a fundamental role in healing ourselves, the global community and our planet Earth as a whole.
That’s why we created Fungi Academy, an alliance between humans and fungi, that inspires us to live in balance with each other and our environment.
Sustainability and living in symbiosis with the natural world is the main inspiration to our lifestyle. We consider the Balance of Life to be sacred. Fungi is an elder species on Earth that helps us to find this balance inside ourselves and the world around us.
We are an international collective of passionate earthlings, working together to bring the magic of fungal wisdom to the world.
We are seeking to spread environmental consciousness, showing people how they can be a positive force for global change, while doing what they love.
