In this workshop for all ages, we will learn about the Native American tradition of the Three Sisters - corn, beans, and squash - and why they work so well together in the garden. We will discuss the importance of cooperation, compatibility, and getting along with each other (in the garden and in life). Participants will plant pots of corn, beans and squash to bring home, along with some ideas for how to incorporate these into your summer garden. While this planting is more suitable to a large garden space, we will also discuss container and small space options.

Grandmothers who were avid gardeners introduced Carolyn to gardening where she developed a lifelong passion to grow things. After becoming a Dallas County Master Gardener in 2002, Carolyn became fascinated with insects and received training from Texas A&M AgriLife to become an entomology specialist.

Bob Richie is an expert on the natural world around us - even here in our neighborhood! Join us for this foraging nature walk at Twelve Hills Nature Preserve (817 Mary Cliff Rd, Dallas, TX 75208). We will meet at AJ Vagabonds, then caravan over to the nature preserve for a foraging expedition.

This class will start with a quick botany lesson on how to positively identify the plants we're seeking, then we'll head over to Twelve Hills to look for fresh and tasty plants growing naturally in our area. Bob will also discuss useful and medicinal plants found in the area.
