Written By Editor on 7/17/23 | 7/17/23

Fonda, NY:  Beginning July 2023, all are welcome to attend homesteading, homemaking, and natural wellness classes on Saturdays with Stephanie Bandosik at Kanatsiohareke Mohawk Community, 4934 State Highway 5, Fonda, NY 12068. Topics include meditation, reiki, upcycling, sewing, foraging, gardening, baking, refreshing summer drinks like fruit shrubs and switchel or “Haymaker’s Punch” and more. 

Meditation classes begin on July 15th and 22nd at 10 am for $15. 

Our “Christmas in July” class on Saturday, July 29th at 9:30 am features upcycling an Old Sweater into New Mittens. No sewing experience is necessary but registration is required. 

Do you have a favorite worn-out old sweater hidden in the back of your closet or bottom drawer that you can't wear OR bear to part with because of its exceptional warmth, beauty, or sentimental value? Learn to upcycle an old sweater into warm mittens in plenty of time to make personalized holiday gifts for your family and friends with this Christmas in July class. Some sewing experience is helpful but not required. Good beginner project for those new to sewing. Participants should bring an old sweater with sleeves and cuffs (wool is great but not necessary), and if possible, polar fleece or an old t-shirt for mitten lining, scissors, needle, thread, and sewing pins. We will have extra supplies to share!  The Cost is $25

Celebrating our 30th Anniversary, Kanatsiohareke Mohawk Community was re-established in 1993 in traditional Mohawk homelands dating back as early as the 12th century.  Kanatsiohareke's mission is to promote the development of a community based on the traditions, philosophy, and governance of the Haudenosaunee (Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy), and to contribute to the preservation of the culture of people as a framework for a blend of traditional native concerns with the best of the emerging new earth-friendly, environmental ideologies that run parallel to these traditions.

Since 2020’s food and supply shortages, there has been a renewed interest in sustainability, homesteading, natural wellness, and learning skills like gardening, food preservation, home cooking, baking from scratch, seed saving, shopping small and local, and community involvement. We look forward to helping the Mohawk Valley community to grow our skills and network.

All are welcome to attend but registration is required by emailing to reserve your space.
