The Three Sisters Garden: A Model of Community and Sustainable Growth
This type of companion planting is widespread among indigenous Native American farming societies
According to Native American legend, corn, beans, and squash are three sisters who grew and flourished together for the benefit of the community. Corn is the oldest sister. She stands tall in the center watching over her two other sisters, squash and beans. Squash is the next sister. She protects her sisters from weeds and shades the soil from the sun with her leaves, keeping it cool and moist. Beans are the third sister. She climbs through the squash and then up the corn stalks binding the three sisters together as she reaches for the sun. Read more
