Equinox: Harvest

“The Three Sisters”
by Toni Truesdale

Corn, bean and squash are  known by many
First Nations as “The Three Sisters”.
These crops were developed by indigenous farmers
All over the Americas pre European contact.
Often grown together in the farmer’s fields;
They were developed for their excellent nutrition.
While many varieties have survived today.
There was more diversity before 1492.
Crops from the Americas transformed the world
And continue today to save many from starvation.
