Amber Vriends says:

Two of my favorite people and one of my favorite topics.. All is connected indeed 🙂 Thank you for sharing this with the world! Your videos are very nice and I appreciate your enthusiasm for what you do. I just started with the creation of my own food forest here in MI, using a combination of the knowledge of many great people like Stamets and Gautschi and my intuition.. It's such an exciting journey!! Keep rocking!

Thank you James for your wonderful videos. I've been gardening organically since 1978!! a tad older than you are lol. Paul is one of my favorites to watch and listen to, because of him I have been using wood chips for over 5 years now, and am amazed at how well the improvement of my soil is. Keep up the good work of informing people how important mulching is.]
Have a wonderful day.

Paul Stamets! My man! As a mycologist I can confirm that ALL the information in this video is accurate. There is one thing you missed however, it's not just that mycorhiza create this relationship with roots and make symbiotic exchanges, the hyphae also continue breaking down organic matter right next to the roots using enzymes, so not only does the hyphae transport water, sugars and nutrients, but it's also creating new food for the plant right next to the roots so the plant can also uptake even more. Lastly there are thousands of species and even some entire Genera that are mychorizal but also produce large macroscopic mushrooms, take Amanita for instance. I've also read studies that focus on the fact that trees are communicating with each other via the mychorhiza. The mycorhiza are almost like telephone cables between trees, if a tree is lacking iron for instance, it can request iron from other organisms linked in the network.

Great stuff! 😀

Its a Neil Young song! (Keep On Rockin In the Free World)

J L says:

Cardboard question. Recycle it or compost/mulch it? I like composting it cause I feel that it serves as a permanent enrichment to my garden. My wife says recycle it cause then they don't have to chop down more forests. What do you think?

Aaron Ryan says:

BTW Rockin in the free world is neil young.

Sandra xyz says:

Can I give that to the mice in a tent, bec they're hungry. do they have sickness? thnks.

Aaron Ryan says:

What's growing on? I love this new format. it seems like it works well for you man.

Jeremy Wendelin says:

I try to watch the Back to Eden once a month lol

Adam Dickson says:

Nice show, I like the idea of doing this. I'll have to go back and see the others.

Enoch River says:

Not Tom Petty, that was from a Neil Young song actually. But totally keep on rocking in the green world though!

S#!t St0rm says:

Soooo, where do we get our hands on some of that fungi?

Daniel Fisch says:

This is my new favorite YouTube channel. Great job, James!!!

i am kamil says:

Great video. Love it. Nice editing skills.

You should do a video on seed sourcing, seed organization and maybe even seed selection. Right now is the time when everyone is getting all the seed catalogs and starting to pick out some seeds.

PS. Make sure you grow those Rutgers tomatoes this year being that you’re from jersey. If you give me your address I’ll send you seeds.

In 10th grade Biology we were choosing the subjects of our reports. I was lazy and picked mine after all the others had been taken– I ended up with Spores, Molds and Fungus. I dreaded it at first (who am I– Dr. Egon Spangler?). I lived in a wooded area and hiked until dark almost every day (instead of doing any homework). Observing nature decompose and recompose itself after reading the material in the library all day really helped me gain an understanding of the subject matter. I got an A on my oral presentation and this really minor high school report has really paid off since in my gardening exploits.

Point being– laziness has its upside sometimes.

James, you should publish the Soil Food Web MVP meme– I think it's the most true.

good day to you James thanks for sharing this advice and information on Mycorrhizal Fungi !!

dancingcedar says:

Thank you.  So concise and easy to understand.  It is that simple.   It is so accessible.  It is a great service that you distill what you are doing to the essentials and explain it so simply and clearly, and have the visual proof for all to see in your garden that you show in your videos.  …..that makes it accessible to people and wow do people NEED this info!  Blessings  🙂
