Welcome to JarSquad!

JarSquad makes jams and preserves using surplus ingredients, collective know-how, and shared effort.

We gather at monthly Assemblies which are open to the public. Working as a SQUAD we turn surplus food into tasty JARS (and more!) which we share in our solidarity economy.

Join us at a JarSquad Assembly!

A JarSquad Assembly is where we work together, chopping, peeling, stirring, jarring, wiping, washing…. to turn surplus food into tasty jars and other treats. It’s a co-learning space, and a community of practice.

Keep up to date…
