Companion Planting – How to Plant A 3-Sisters Garden

A common Native American technique for growing food was to plant corn, beans, and squash together.

The nitrogen-fixing nature of the beans provides fertilizer for the corn and squash, while the corn provides support for the bean vines.

This is one of the original examples of companion planting being used to improve yields for all 3 plants!

Check out an example of how to do this in the video below…

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
