Plant up another 3 sisters area for Canada Day
Come and see our new 3 sisters garden plots:
The Iroquois (Hodeneshone) were agricultural people who lived along the eastern shores of Lake Ontario in Canada, and in northern New York State below the St. Lawrence River.
Among the good spirits of the Iroquois are the three sisters who reside over their favourite vegetables – corn, beans and squash. They are represented as loving one another very dearly and dwelling together in peace and unity.
The vines of the vegetables grow upon the same soil and cling lovingly to one another. The spirit of corn is draped over the corn with its green leaves and silken tassels which represent a green shawl and long blond hair. The sister who guards the bean has the garments of velvety green pods and delicate tendrils, while the spirit of the squash is clothed with the brilliant yellow blossoms.
On bright nights you may be able to see the spirit of the three sisters flitting about or hear them rustling amongst the tall corn.
