Moundville Archaeological Park's Three Sisters Garden is grown to demonstrate Mississippian Era food ways. Our plants are grown organically. Our seeds come from trusted suppliers who are also interested in preserving Native American culture through the plants the ancients cultivated to feed themselves, heal their ailments and make useful tools and dyes.
All we ask in return is for the grower to give back some of the seeds from the plants they grow.


If you would like to support the garden or this seed bank, please contact Kenric Minges.
