Celebrate Festivals in Natchitoches

Planting Time at Los Adaes

The heritage garden at Los Adaes SHS has been tilled and we need help to put in a crop. Guests will learn the “farm to table” history of what we know was grown by the Spanish and Adai at Los Adaes on Saturday, March 16th, 2019, at 11AM.

While learning about what was originally grown on site we will ask that guests be willing to get their hands dirty and build mounds needed for planting the Three Sisters of corn, beans, and squash.

Guests will get a hands-on history lesson on what the settlers at Los Adaes grew to eat and will be welcome to return later in the year to observe what became from the hard work.

This hands-on event will allow kids and adults to get their hands dirty while planting heirloom seeds of plant varieties grown over 300 years ago. Please wear clothing that you are willing to get dirty as we will be using our hands to build the seed mounds and then place seeds in the garden. After we plant the seeds, attendees will receive a tour of the site grounds highlighting where the farms and orchard were located around the presidio.

In case of inclement weather the program will be cancelled. Call the CRNHA office to check on developments. 318-356-5555
