Part of the Plains Project, a personal design experiment finding inspiration in the everyday. I grew up on a farm in South Dakota and recently moved back to the Northern Great Plains (a.k.a flyover country). Inspired by Rob Walker and his book The Art of Noticing I wanted to explore the familiar to find inspiration.
Three Sisters mix, a Native American agriculture concept where corn, beans and squash are planted together in mounds, as they help each other thrive. The corn grows tall for the beans to climb, the beans provide nitrogen to the soil and the squash leaves shade the ground which maintains the moisture.
