Description

Join us on November 14 for a special meal in honor of Native American Heritage Month. We'll be serving up three delicious dishes between 11 and 2 pm featuring the Three Sisters.

The Three Sisters (maize, beans, and squash) is what Native American farmers called a classic form of mixed cropping, and archaeological evidence has shown that these three American domesticates have been grown together for perhaps 5,000 years. The farmer dug a hole in the ground and placed one seed of each species into the hole. The maize grows first, providing a stalk for the beans, which reaches upward for access to the sun. The squash plant grows low to the ground, shaded by the beans and corn, and keeps the weeds from affecting the other two plants.
