Luke Perry has been quietly buried in an organic "mushroom suit" on his beloved Tennessee farm so his decomposing body can nourish the soil, can exclusively report.

"The mushroom suit will turn Luke into clean compost," said a pal of the late "Beverly Hills, 90210" star. "This was one of Luke's last wishes. He was always very ecologically-minded."

Though his death certificate indicated he was buried in Tennessee, friends and family were initially told his body was cremated in an effort to be "environmentally conscious."

However, the notoriously private star actually made other eco-friendly arrangements before his death.

What's more, Perry —who suffered a massive stroke at his home in Sherman Oaks, CA and died from complications on March 4 at the age of 52 — had several of his organs donated to other people.

According to the source, he donated his lungs, kidneys and liver, but they could not find a match for his heart.

"It's sad and ironic since everyone who knew Luke talked about what a big heart he had in life," said his pal.
