This special heritage seed packet collection celebrates native people’s agricultural tradition. Corn, squash and beans were planted beginning around the year 800 in the largest Native American city north of the Rio Grande known as Cahokia, in what is now known as the state of Illinois, across the Mississippi River from St Louis, Missouri and continued into early in the 17th-century.
The seeds provided will plant one 2 foot mound and includes the special heritage seed mound varieties inspired by Three Sisters Garden tradition: White Gourdseed Corn, Striped Creaseback Bean, Illinois or White Crookneck Winter Squash (Pumpkin). The heritage seed packet collection is packaged in the typical manner of an 18th-century letter and sealed with red wax. The package itself opens to detailed information reflecting the history and additional growing details of each variety of seeds provided. Additional Three Sister gardening information and recipe included.
