Elkins Park Resident Pushes Farming To Front Yard

Michaelann Velicky’s "front-yard farm" started out modestly enough. In 2009, she planted a traditional American Indian Three Sisters garden out there — more than a dozen mounds of corn, beans, and squash — covering a 16-square-foot patch of lawn down by the road. The idea behind the ancient design is simple: The crops act like three devoted sisters, literally supporting and complementing one another.
