"Three Sisters" Garden

2018 Iris Garden (1)
The Madera Master Gardeners program demonstration garden is located on a two-acre parcel allotted by the college for this purpose. The name "Three Sisters" was chosen for the garden in recognition of the wise growing practices and respect for the land shown by Native American cultures. The garden site was officially dedicated in March 2009, although there is still much work to be done to complete this project.

 The garden will provide learning opportunities for K-12 students and community college students as well as for the general public.
