Three Sisters Garden
New this year! A three sisters garden is a traditional Native American garden that consists of corn, squash and beans. By putting them together, the three sisters support one another and make it difficult for critters to eat them.
Our three sisters garden is a tribute to the Native Americans who originally occupied Sherwood Island. Settlers later turned the area into potato and onion farms.
