Howard Room, Blue Hill Public Library


Join the Blue Hill Co-op in welcoming Ben Rooney, farm manager of Wild Folk Farm, a Maine farm in its 4th season of growing rice in paddies! Through the Maine Rice Project, they have been experimenting with their farming methods, trialling new seeds and working to bring local rice to the people of Maine. Learn about their successes, the different ways to grow rice depending acreage, mimicking wetlands, and methods that might translate to your own growing environment! There will be ample time for discussion and questions.
