Growing certain vegetables, herbs or flowers together that complement each other has a long history. Indigenous peoples of North America often planted what is called The Three Sisters (corn, beans, and squash). We will explore how, with a bit of planning, you too can increase biodiversity, help reduce the need for pesticides, save space and improve soil.

The Lake County Master Gardener Volunteers are partnering with the Mentor Public Library for this series of nine Saturday sessions. Although the sessions are FREE, space is limited and registration IS required through the library. Go to for registration instructions and information.
