Empowering people for positive change through education and inspiration
Mundekulla is an ecological course and retreat center in the countryside of Småland: The place where also the famous botanic Linnaeus and Pippi Longstocking come from. At Mundekulla people come together for courses, conferences and festivals, from 15-300 people, on personal development, mindfulness, creativity, nature and of course: beautiful nourishing food.
Mundekulla is built on sustainable principles ever since it started over 20 years ago. From the buildings to green energy, from social justice to peace projects. Our biggest wish is to inspire people with the things we do and the food we make.
We want to create experiences, arts, learnings and inspiring food you just have to bring home to share with your loved ones.
