All are cordially invited to the third annual “Three Sisters Garden” planting ceremony on May 1, 2024 from 11am - 12pm in the Science 1 Quad. We will demonstrate traditional Haudenosaunee agricultural knowledge utilizing Indigenous corn, beans, and squash seeds from the Onondaga Nation Farm. Guest speakers Angela Ferguson, Onondaga Eel Clan and Tony Gonyea, Onondaga Beaver Clan who will guide a Thanksgiving Address and garden planting.

Partners from across Binghamton University will be planting the "Three Sisters Garden" in collaboration with the Onondaga Nation, the central fire keepers of the Haudenosaunee, and in the spirit of the Two Row Wampum — G├ñ•sweñta' or The Silver Covenant Chain of Friendship. As a Living Treaty, "Together we will travel in Friendship and in Peace Forever; as long as the grass is green, as long as the water runs downhill, as long as the sun rises in the East and sets in the West, and as long as our Mother Earth will last."

Closed-toe shoes and light jackets are advised in case of inclement weather. Shelter and seating will be provided
