I've heard of making mushroom compost, and there is a lot of information on the net.
Just an example: http://whatbethat.com/%20mushroomhandbook/

I've never heard of growing mushroom compost; is that growing mushrooms and turning them into the compost growing medium?

It really depends on whether you are planning on growing mushrooms, or just making some for the garden. Usually, a gardener purchaes mushroom compost that has been used up by raising mushrooms. There is good bacteria (as long as the mushroom grower didn't steam it) . most gardens do not need the additives, and depending on the directions, SFG does not need the added peat. I think that is in the 2nd or third phase of mushroom growing process.
