"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.

Madera Community College Center, Madera CA

Madera Food pantry 3

Gardening Day at Madera Community College Center was a exciting event with support of those on site at the college. We had lots of help at the  Three Sisters Demonstration Garden. The Madera Master Gardeners and the college have a partnership to use the demonstration garden to hold free workshops, public events and the veggie garden as donated almost a ton of fruits and veggies this year to Madera Food Bank. The Madera Campus now has it's own food pantry and the garden is planning on supporting this also. For more information or photos about our partnership click here.
