A girl and her Nanticoke Winter Squash 🎃 "The Nanticoke people once spoke an Algonquin language and lived mainly in southern Delaware and on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake in Maryland. They were encountered by John Smith (of Pocahontas fame) in the 1600s. Today, Nanticoke people live primarily in Delaware and southern New Jersey (where they have merged with the local Lenni Lenape to form the Nanticoke Lenni Lenape Nation)." -N. Kleinman
Seeds from @experimentalfarmnetwork
These squash were grown in the @ethnobotanyprojectnyc Three Sisters garden. If you are of the Nanticoke Lenni Lenape Nation and would like these seeds, please be in touch. These seeds will be kept in our seed library for educators with school gardens who want to teach and celebrate the rich history of indigenous peoples living in our region from the beginning of time to present day.

"Children need to have the opportunity to reconnect with nature while gaining valuable academic experiences. By helping schools and organizations build, maintain, and utilize gardens children of all backgrounds and needs gain access to free, healthy foods they have grown THEMSELVES."

By Sonya Harris “Last week and in response to the brutal murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis that starkly reminded us we have a lot of work to repair, rebuild, and improve our institutions so all feel welcome and are protected, Sonya went unscripted and reflected her first-hand experience being a black woman, educator, and mother on Instagram, to share her story…”

Sonya Harris is an active member of the Cooperative Gardens Commission. Meg Cowen of Seed to Fork recently interviewed Sonya, and it’s worth republishing here to highlight what some of our BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and Persons of Color) members are up to.

"“The goal was to vertically integrate everything we could,” Berrey explained. As historic agrarians, this shift to tribal control and a vertically integrated food system was nothing new. “It was going back to our roots,” Roper said.

But serving the community always came first. Meals for elders and community members had to take precedent over gaining a profit. With this vision of moving forward while staying rooted in Quapaw cultural traditions, the Tribe began to plant the seeds."
