Friends, please join us for a Three Sisters gardening class at Four String Farm this Saturday, March 19, from 9:00am to 11:00am.

The Three Sisters is the ancient Native American technique for companion planting corn, beans, and squash (plus pumpkins, melons, cucumbers, nasturtiums, and herbs). This method is an easy and efficient way to grow a tremendous amount of food with minimal work or expense.

The Three Sisters method is possibly the best-kept gardening secret in America.  But on Saturday, we will share the secrets of this ancient technique to help you grow a variety of vegetables, herbs, and flowers right in your own garden.   Our farm will be featured in a Smithsonian exhibit demonstrating this method.

In this workshop, we will teach you everything you need to know to plant a small or large Three Sisters garden. Whether you want to fill a little planter in your front yard, or grow enough produce to feed your family, this workshop will give you with the skills to do it.

We will begin with bare dirt and plant several variations of the technique. We will even show you how Squanto taught the Pilgrims to bury fish as fertilizer!

This workshop will be held out-of-doors on our farm.  Please wear long pants, close-toed shoes, and bring a hat.  This will be a small class with personalized instruction, and we will answer all your gardening questions as we go.

As part of the cost of this class, you will receive a starter seed packet prepared by me and Kayla, as well as seed packets of heirloom corn, beans, and squash.

The cost of this workshop is $35 per person, and a portion of the proceeds will go to a local charity. You must pay in advance for this class. Directions to our farm with more detailed information will be e-mailed to you once you complete the payment.

We are so sorry, this class is full.  To find out about upcoming classes, please subscribe to this blog to get updates about classes and other information.  Thank you, have a wonderful day!

Thank you, we look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
