Just curious if there are any types of mushrooms / fungi that are harmful to the soil or garden. I'm seeing many different types of mushrooms in my yard. Is there anything to watch out for?

Harmful to the soil or garden is a little hard to understand from a permaculture perspective. Poisonous to humans is quite understandable, and there are many. A few are even deadly. Harmful to the ecology doesn't make sense when you think about the overall balance of nature, as Rachel Carson would say.
