Four Sisters Garden Seed Collection

Native American agriculture is well-known for the “Three Sisters” approach of corn, beans and squash supporting, protecting and nourishing each other. Several other crops were very important in Native American gardening, with sunflowers being very prominent on that list. There is very strong evidence sunflowers were the very first crop to be cultivated, making them the Eldest Sister!

Buffalo Bird Woman of the Hidatsa tribe talked of planting sunflowers first– leading to a “Four Sisters” garden. She followed century's old agricultural practices in the fertile bottomlands of the Missouri River, where the women of the family grew corn, beans, squash and sunflowers.

Our Four Sisters Garden Seed Collection pays homage to these four crops and the importance of their interrelatedness then and now. We encourage you to try this method of gardening and see for yourself the amazing results.

Included in this collection is the following book "Native American Recipes” and the following four seed packets:

  • Black Russian Sunflower (Approx 50 seeds per pack)
  • White Eagle Corn (Approx 125 seeds per pack)
  • Black Beauty Zucchini (Approx 25 seeds per pack)
  • Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean (Approx 50 seeds per pack) 
From the soil to the seed to the food you eat - we'll help you grow your best garden!
