More Destinations:


Each Saturday from April to August, volunteers with green thumbs can help plant, maintain, and harvest our traditional Cherokee Three Sisters garden. We'll provide the heirloom plants & seeds if you provide the help! Come harvest time, our volunteer gardeners are welcome to take home whatever they help to grow!

According to Cherokee legend, corn, beans, and squash are three inseparable sisters who only grow and thrive together. The corn stalk provides a natural pole for the beans to climb, the beans provide nitrates into the soil, and the squash plant provides shade to hold in moisture and repel insects. So, the three sisters all work together to provide a bountiful harvest!
