Join us on Tuesday, June 7 from 3-7 pm for our Plant your own Three Sisters' Garden. This FREE kid activity is again made possible thanks to Debrucque Greenhouses of Canastota who are providing a planting station where all children receive corn, bean pole and pumpkin seeds to create their very own sisters' garden. Friends of the ONeida Library will join us for storytelling from 4-6pm and passing out coloring book pages. The City of ONeida Parks and REcreation Oneida Rail Trail will also be at the market.
Did you know
Native Americans planted corn, beans, and squash(pumpkins are in the squash family) together so that they would help each other grow.Corn provides a natural pole for the bean vines to climb.Beans provide nitrogen into the soil that benefits all. Squash(in our case pumpkin) becomes a living mulch, preventing weeds and keeping the soil wet for all three to thrive.
