The wisdom of a Three Sisters Garden The corn serves as a pole for your beans to climb. Corn requires nitrogen to grow; Beans absorb nitrogen from the air and convert it to a form that other plants like corn can use. The beans climb up the corn stalk an provide extra rigidity preventing the corn stalk from falling down during wind or rain. The squash balances it out providing shade; keeping weeds down and moisture in the soil.
