Three Sisters Hoodie
Did you know?
Corn, beans and squash, known as the Three Sisters, is a well-balanced, nutritious diet which is why these crops are so significant for our people and later the settlers.
Corn is an excellent source of carbohydrates, beans are high in protein, and squash has many vitamins and minerals.
Over three centuries before Thanksgiving, the Iroquois have grown the Three Sisters!
Essentially, the corn becomes a pole up which the beans can climb, and the bean vines stabilize the corn so it does not blow over in windy conditions.
The beans are a type of legume, and bacteria on the roots of legumes take nitrogen found in the air and soil and make it usable for crops, also known as “fixing” nitrogen.
The squash plants produce large leaves that shade all three plants, protecting them from weeds and keeping the soil cool and moist.
Additionally, spiky squash plants keep predators like raccoons and other rodents at bay, guarding bean and corn plants as well.
