Rice paddies in New York City? You will find them among the 40,000-square feet of urban farm that stretched across the southern end of Randall’s Island. Along with the boasting the only rice paddies in New York City (there are four), the Urban Farm at Randall’s Island also has 100 raised beds, two greenhouses, an outdoor kitchen, and an integrated compost bin that is fed by a solar-powered forced-air system.

The Urban Farm at Randall’s Island was created in 2010. The outdoor space provides school groups and the public with environmental education and nutritional learning by showing how to grow, harvest, and eat farm-fresh produce. The public is encouraged to get involved with seasonal farm tours (which end this week!) and arts and crafts sessions, as well as special events like the upcoming Urban Farm Bike tour.
