Interactive "Hands-On" Rice Planting

Join a costumed interpreter as he describes how Carolina Gold rice was planted on Lowcountry plantations, and learn about the African origins of rice and its cultivation in South Carolina in the 18th and 19th centuries. Participants, if they desire, may get down and dirty in the demonstration rice field and assist with the planting. Traditional methods will be employed beginning with the May planting through the September harvest.
