Special Announcement

The Schoharie River Center and Fox Creek Farm CSA in Gallupville are excited to announce a special partnership.  Your Schoharie River Center Membership entitles you to a 10% discount of a CSA share!  


Fox Creek Farm CSA in Gallupville grows high quality produce sing organic farming practices. For the last 13 years, Raymond and Sara Luhrman have been fine-tuning their farming skills and crop selection to address the needs of a broad community of farm supporters – growing from 10 CSA members in 2003, to well over 400 members right now. The farm is probably one of the better kept secrets in the town of Wright: located at the end of a half-mile private driveway, the woods give way to the open farm fields.

CSA members don’t only get to share in the abundant seasonal harvests, but also get to enjoy the vistas at the farm, the CSA member U-pick garden with culinary herbs, flowers, and a wide selection of cherry tomatoes. Joining the CSA is easy: just visit their website (www.foxcreekfarmcsa.com) for more information.

October 15th, 16th - at the Schoharie River Center


Back by popular demand, Helen Condon of Adirondack Rug Braiding will again offer a two day weekend class in rug braiding basics.  Workshop participants will make their own rug, a uniquely designed “Right Whale” rug.


In the early Nantucket Whaling Days the Right Whale was prized for its rich oil. Today we think of the Right Whale as the one to save as its numbers are dangerously decreasing. The black and white colors represent the white spots on the head and every whale has its own pattern, Blue Atlantic waters bathe the whales as they guide their young from the cold eastern waters to the warmer waters in southern Florida for the winter.  This is a pretty rug that would look well in any room but, especially goes with greens, blues and burgundy.


Students in this two day class will learn the start of the rug, the braiding, lacing, color changing, designing and tail end. Although they won't finish the 2X3 foot rug in the two days they will have all the skills needed to do so at home.


Cost is just $25.00 for Schoharie River Center members and $40.00 for  non-members. You will also need to purchase a rug kit: either Wool Only Kit for $70, or, Complete Rug Kit for $100 (includes wool, clamp, needle, twine and instruction booklet)
