In North America, beans have been an important pillar of food and agriculture for hundreds of generations. As part of "The Three Sisters," beans, squash and corn work together to create a circle of interdependence. Such a system is one based on giving and receiving, where each crop works to its fullest potential to provide for the others. The harvested result is a nutritiously complete meal with all necessary components for survival. I'm inspired by this hearty trio, and I hope you are too!
