At Three Sisters Gardens, we are using urban agriculture to engage community members to get involved in creating a food system that is good for us and the environment.
MISSION & HISTORY.
Three Sisters Gardens is a non-profit organization in West Sacramento, California, that brings together community members to cultivate food and life. Our primary goal is to give back to the community by inspiring and empowering youth through gardening, with a focus on teaching them how to grow, harvest, and distribute organic vegetables in their local area.
At Three Sisters Gardens, we believe the key to a thriving community is to work together as one, with all components - youth, adults, and elders - collaborating in harmony. We draw inspiration from the Three Sisters' legend of companionship planting, which exemplifies the importance of mutual support and coexistence in nature.
Our mission is grounded in traditional Native American values that prioritize respect for Mother Earth and all living things. We use urban agriculture as a tool to engage community members and create a food system that is sustainable, nourishing, and good for the environment.
Community members can learn practical skills, build relationships, and deepen their connection to the land by participating in our programs. We believe that gardening has the power to transform individuals and communities, and we are committed to making this transformative experience accessible to all.
