Shroomy Community Guidelines


Shroomy is an app that is meant to foster not only best practices for fungi & mushroom cultivation, but also allows community members to connect with each other. We expect that all Shroomy users are helping us foster a positive community that abides by all local and federal regulations and guidelines. The expectation is that mutual respect should be the rule when using Shroomy: respect others, respect the law, and respect all of our terms of service and community guidelines.


Shroomy is the culmination of decades of mushroom cultivation best practices. We respect the legacy of mushroom growing practitioners, and have worked to ensure that we're crafting guidelines that do not only respect the law, but also respect the intrinsic nature and legacy of the mushroom cultivation community. Meaning: mushroom cultivators respect other people getting into the cultivation practice. Core to the mushroom cultivation community is the idea of “sharing:” sharing best practices, sharing insights/stories, sharing cultivation genetics, and more. With Shroomy, we are striving to foster a community that extends these cultural norms using technology. In order to carry this community responsibility, we have developed these guidelines and we expect our users to abide by them.

Following the law

  1. General legal overview: Shroomy is a platform for legal mushroom cultivation only. You are responsible for knowing and following whatever laws apply to you.

  2. Harassment & respect: Harassment deters from Shroomy's community goals, and then prevents people from feeling safe on Shroomy. In general, respect each other.
