Children plant "the three sisters"—corn, beans, and squash in the school garden. These are "the most important crops for many Native American diets. In companion planting, they are planted together so that corn can give support to the bean vines, and the beans can put nitrogen in the soil to help the corn grow. Squash protects the roots of the other plants and cuts down on weeds."
