The Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership (GGP) is hosting the Three Sisters at your Thanksgiving Table Saturday, Nov. 11, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Pagosa Lakes Property Owners Association Clubhouse. 

Tickets are available at the door or at 

The Three Sisters are corn, beans and squash, grown together and eaten together for untold generations in the Four Corners. The GGP’s Three Sisters dinner will celebrate community with great food, vibrant photography and live music.

Community cooks will bring favorite dishes of corn, beans and/or squash to share. Lighthearted local judges will select the best entries. Cooks must bring their dishes between 3 and 4 p.m. Cooks bringing dishes get in free. Other family and friends buy a ticket to support the GGP.

The GGP will treat all guests to a succotash stew, salad and pumpkin cookies. Succotash is a traditional Native American stew of corn, beans and squash. Guests can taste the community cooks’ dishes and dinner will be served at 5 p.m.

The Pagosa Springs Photography Club will display the winners of its annual digital photo contest onto a large screen. Members of the local club have donated print photos that guests can purchase. Proceeds will benefit the GGP’s continuing operations.

Highlights of the family-friendly evening will be live music with Brooks-I, freshly ground blue corn meal, locally brewed beer and thriving house plants raised in the GGP’s Education Dome. The GGP’s signature chokecherry-laced champagne will round out the celebration. 

Each ticket holder receives a free drink and nonalcoholic drinks will be available. After that complimentary drink, a cash bar benefits the 501(c)(3) nonprofit GGP.

The GGP is a donation and volunteer driven organization that operates three greenhouses in Centennial Park.
