|Rice Drying on Randall's Island|
Randall's Island Park
Creator and Designer
Eunyoung is the Assistant Horticulture Manager for Randall's Island Park. She was the creator of our Children's Garden. Over the last three years, the garden has expanded. It is now 12,000 square feet. The Children's Garden is now called The Learning Garden. This year Eunyoung had the idea to make a rice paddy. I thought she didn't have a chance of pulling it off.
