According to Native American legend, corn, beans and squash are the three inseparable sisters who grow and thrive together. The Three Sisters Garden Project (TSGP) will nurture sustainable local food systems that connect us to the land and to each other. TSGP is a collaborative effort that brings together voices and efforts from a wide range of community groups and organizations.
We seek to help build an environmentally, economically and socially sustainable community that is inclusive of all its citizens.
We will create and grow an agricultural program that integrates sustainable farmland stewardship, food-based community engagement and education.
• Provide and facilitate educational programs
• Build and strengthen a healthy community
• Practice and promote sustainability
Building on components readily available in most communities, this program is designed specifically to be replicable by other communities. The success of this endeavor can reach beyond Ipswich and demonstrate how other communities can build a sustainable food system and community.
