On Saturday April 22nd, Impact HUB Tokyo will be hosting its third Responsible Marché, the 2023 Earth Day Edition. 🌏
Earth Day is an annual commemoration on April 22nd, to think about positive actions that we can do to invest in our planet! This year again, we have gathered a variety of vendors with the concept of “Giving back to Earth,” from Earth-friendly plant-based food products to circular fashion and sustainable products.

As part of this event, we’re glad to present to you a workshop led by Byron (and his knowledgeable children) from Kasamatsu Farms where you will learn and experience how to grow shiitake mushrooms on logs!
As Spring is gently settling down, this is a great opportunity to learn more about farming and perhaps discover a new and fun hobby!

During the workshop, Byron will share his knowledge about his family's approach to sustainable living and farming. This workshop will focus on mycology and small scale mushroom production. We will learn the techniques needed to inoculate wood with mushroom spores so we can have our own small scale backyard or balcony mushroom production.

Through the workshop, Byron will guide us through the process of inoculating our own logs and answer common and practical questions such as how to maintain the right so you can enjoy a successful mushroom harvest for years to come.
In order for the shiitake mushrooms to grow, the logs (about 1 meter long) will need to be kept in a humid outdoor place (without direct sun) for about a year. We’re aware that not so many of you have this kind of space in the city and therefore, Impact HUB will also offer the possibility of keeping the logs at the back of the building. In that case, you will be contacted in about a year by email to visit and harvest the mushrooms.

This workshop will also include one drink, served at the end, from Deli at Communita, the new cafe recently opened by Impact HUB Tokyo. If you have a reusable mug, we would appreciate it if you could bring it to minimize waste in case there isn’t enough mugs available.
We hope to see you on April 22nd and get our hands a little dirty together for Earth Day! 🌏
