Last week’s inaugural symposium on the history and culture of Lowcountry rice was a phenomenal success, and our community owes a debt of thanks to the Lowcountry Rice Culture Project for its driving role in celebrating the legacy of rice in South Carolina. In order to keep the momentum going, and to help spread the message about the significance of rice cultivation in the early cultural and economic history of this region, I have developed a program called “Ten Things Everyone Should Know about Lowcountry Rice.” The purpose is to convey ten simple but important points about rice over three hundred years of Lowcountry history that everyone can understand and pass on to their friends and neighbors. What are those ten points? Well, you’ll have to attend the program to find out, and you have four opportunities to hear the program.
