Can I / how can I use mushrooms in a no-till garden? The methods I've seen for using mushrooms in gardens involve plowing the substrate (e.g. woodchips) and inoculant into the soil or covering it with soil, which would defeat the purpose of no-till.

I'm thinking about doing one or multiple of the following:
-using a liquid suspension of mycelium to inoculate the soil
-making holes with a dibble and filling them with sawdust inoculant
-covering the soil in a layer of inoculant, covered by a layer of mulch to provide moisture and a substrate

Has anyone grown mushrooms in a no-till garden and know any methods that work?

For a guide focusing on edible mushrooms, I would suggest Edible and Medicinal Mushrooms of New England and Eastern Canada by David Spahr. Even if you're not in the northeast, it probably has plenty of mushrooms in your area. The author is also very cautious, and only recommends the safest mushrooms.

I was wondering, are there any mushrooms that could be grown on dead leaves? We just put 24 bags of leaves from our yard on the curb.

I once found a buried acorn that was colonized with mycelium, so I assume this would work.

Okay, I think its one of these three species:
-Psathyrella Pseudovernalis
-Parasola Conopilus
-Psathyrella Cystidiosa

I found these mushrooms on a rotting log in the woods in Maine. My first thought was Streaked Coincap, but the spore print was dark brown or black. Does anyone know what these are?

Paul Stamets suggests cutting a piece of flesh from above the gills or near the base and placing it on agar.

I read about strain banks in a book by Paul Stamets. Is there any communal strain bank, like the ATCC but for mushrooms?
