In 2020, the Truro Historical Society planted a Three Sisters Garden on the lawn of the Cobb Archive, with the help of Blue Flax Landscaping and owner, Theresa Sprague. This year, Blue Flax again helped us prepare the garden and Longnook Meadows Farm donated seedlings which will grow throughout the summer to produce the three sisters: corn, beans and squash.
For many Native American communities, the three sisters represent the most important crops. When planted together, the Three Sisters, work together to help one another thrive and survive. This garden was planted in tribute to the Wampanoag peoples, including the Pamets of Truro, who were the original natives of the land we now call Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
