  • Description

    Description

    We are a family who run Micologica 360°+ , an independent mushroom project started about ten years ago in the Northern Sierra of Oaxaca in Mexico.
    Right now we are starting our Applied Mycology Training Center (CEMICAP) , on a new site located in Cuernavaca, Morelos, at one hour drive from Mexico city.

    What we do:
    We run our mycological laboratory and we cultivate mushrooms, for nutritional and medicinal purposes.
    We offer training and technical consulting in different regions of Mexico so people can learn to produce and process edible and medicinal mushrooms out of locally available agro-forestry waist, so to develop their family, community and commercial activity. We also offer mushroom based products
    Our Project goals are to promote environmental, nutritional, and medicinal properties also as the many benefits of wild and cultivated mushrooms through training and education.
    As our Applied Mycology Training Center is seeking to develop new forms of accessible and practical education, we would like to develop an early age program so Kids can be educated in harmony with adults operating a mushroom farm.

    What we are looking for:
    An experienced Teacher or Educator to apply an alternative educational program adapted to our site, mushroom culture and mentality, who is serious about how to adapt his/her pedagogical skills (Preferably with Montessori or Waldorf orientations even though we are very open).
    First for our 9 years old son, and eventually for more kids in the future, on our site in Cuernavaca.
    A minimum of 8 weeks, up to 16 weeks commitment is asked, so to have sufficient time to adapt their pedagogical strategy with our Applied Mycology Training Center activities.

    Open only to Mushroom Lovers:
    Experimented Educators or Teachers with alternative pedagogy, with or without diplomas but verifiable previous experience(s).
    Participants have to speak Spanish, at least to be able to practice their specialty with Spanish speaking kids, English and French as second or third languages are welcome for communication with other team members, so are families with kids, but unfortunately we cannot receive more pets on our site.

    If given the opportunity to come to Cuernavaca Morelos to help as an Alternative Child Educator on our Mushroom project, you will have the opportunity to divide your time to also learn different processes of mushroom cultivation and processing with our international team.

    What do we offer:
    Safe Camping on our site, vegetarian food served 3 times a day, electricity, wifi, drinkable water, access to our thematic library, common shower and toilets.
    Multi cultural interactions with students and participants to our mycological project.

    Please understand that this is not the beach, even if we seek to make your stay as pleasant as possible for you, you are welcome only if you are interested in what we do with Mushrooms, and are willing to share the best of your alternative education skills during your stay accordingly.
    Please only serious volunteers apply.

    thanks for reading and may the Spores be with You
