Rice season starts! (Early May)

I have been involved with the rice project at Randall’s Island Urban Farm since 2011. My small curiosity had got me into starting to grow Rice plants, which are still the first known rice paddies in New York City. With my grandmother’s tutorage and my horticulture bible, we had a successful rice season and harvest. We have had some challenges and small issues, but we have improved and are excited to have the 4th Season. This year, we are growing Italian rice; “Carnaroli” and “Vialone,” which are from Melotti’s Farm. I look forward to seeing different varieties of rice growing in our rice paddies at the Urban Farm.
