Three Sisters Gardens’ main goal is to give back to the community by inspiring and empowering youth through gardening. Like the Three Sisters legend of companionship planting, Three Sisters Gardens believes that our communities can begin to heal and thrive when all components, the youth, adults and elders are working together as one.
Bringing the entire Community together to share knowledge and grow.
Serving as a vehicle for youth education and development, the Youth Farms will engage school-aged children from the Yolo communities with food production and teamwork.
Additional Three Sisters Gardens projects and locations coming soon.

The mission of Three Sisters Gardens is to teach youth how to grow, harvest, and distribute organic vegetables right where we live.
Three Sisters Gardens is based in traditional Native American values of respecting Mother Earth and all living things.
At Three Sisters Gardens we are using urban agriculture to engage community members to get involved in creating a food system that is good for us and the environment.
Inspiring Urban Agriculture Projects
Around 15 percent of the world’s food is now grown in urban areas. According to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), urban farms already supply food to about 700 million residents of cities, representing about a quarter of the world’s urban population. By 2030, 60 percent of people in developing countries will likely live in cities.
"Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children."
Sitting Bull, Hunkpapa Lakota
He who plants a garden plants happiness
“Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish been caught, and the last stream poisoned, will we realize we cannot eat money.”
