Wassail and JarSquad Take Over

Saturday, January 7

Let’s put JOY & CONNECTION IN JARS!

JarSquad will do a mini-Assembly at Culture Club with a focus on preserving the harvest collected (and stored) from Stoke

DO YOU HAVE A JAM RECIPE specific to your culture that you’d like to share? Email JarSquad in advance so they can collaborate with you: hello@jarsquad.com

1:00-3:00PM: We’ll prep and preserve as a Stoke Village Hub squad. We’ll chat about whether we’d like to start a Village Hub JarSquad and what else we might like to do for future sessions.

3:00PM-4:00PM: We’ll begin to wrap up and we’ll head out to do a Wassail to the trees in Blockhouse Park.

A Wassail is a traditional custom in cider producing regions of the UK where local people would sing songs to the trees and toast them good health for the new year. People would dress in winter greenery and bring pots and pans to bang and ward away bad spirits. Feel free to bring your own!

This is a free event but reserve your place HERE.
