Traditionally, the area should be slightly round and about eight feet in diameter. Make a mound in the center that is about 12 inches high and between 18 inches to three feet across.

Think about a three sister's garden. Take a tip from the Native Americans and plant corn. beans, and squash together and whatever elge but e pe- cially those. Corn, beans, squash are the three sisters, long revered for their life sus- taining qualities. When grown together, they are among the best examples of compariion gardening - a technique that rec- ognizes plants' natural ability to attract or rel el insects and to sometimes enhance the growth of etherplants, lnterplant- ing these three vegetables was a tradition practiced by Native Americans :for hundreds of years. The cornstalks provide a trel- lis for the pole beans to climb on. The beans help fix nitrogen, especially needed by corn, in the soil. The prickly leaves of the winter squash or pumpkin repel animal pests and provide shade eight corn seeds in a circle in the center of the mound. If you place them in positions north, south, east, and west, you will be continuing a Native American tradition of paying homage to the "Four Directions." The seeds should be placed about six inches apart and placed under an inch of soil. Pat the soil down and water well. The seeds should sprout in a couple of weeks. Plant the beans once the corn is four to 10 inches high. Plant about a dozen bean seeds in a circle about six inches from the corn. Cover the seeds with about an inch of soil and pat the soil down with your hand. Be sure to use pole, not bush beans, inoculate the seeds before planting. Water well. The beans should sprout in a week or two. Plant the squash about a week after planting the bean . Sow or even winter squash or pumpkin seeds in a circle about a foot from the beans. Cover with one-quarter inch of soil and firm the ground with your hand. Water well. The squash should sprout in a week. Tend the garden. Keep your garden watered and free of weeds. As the plants grow. thin to about three or four of each. The beans should be climbing the corn as it grows. You may help them out by wrapping the bean vines around the corn stalks to get them started. You may also want to gently move the squash vines toward the center of the mound so leaves continue to provide the necessary cover. Harvest in the fall. Good Luck! This would be fun for the children.
