Native American Garden Poster
Did you find our Native American Garden at Foothill near the Library? Would you like to find out more?
There are stories to go along with the Three Sisters method of planting. You can find one from Alabama here.
Are you a parent volunteer looking for a good science lesson to go along with our Three Sisters Garden? Here are some good examples.

Would you like to know more about Native peoples in California? Do you think we can find out more about native peoples from the plants they grew? A person who studies the culture of a people concerning plants is an ethnobotanist. Here, you can find a talk about California ethnobotany. (Be ready, it is about 1.5 hours long!) There is a short discussion on chia about 30 minutes into the video. Did you find the chia in our garden?
