Practical Agriculture for Hamakua will offer a third presentation, “A Diverse Approach to Beekeeping in Hawaii,” by Jenny Bach from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., on Wednesday, Nov. 13, at Laupahoehoe Community Public Charter School in Laupahoehoe. A few years ago, Hawaii was a honeybee heaven. With the arrival of two major honeybee pests, beekeeping changed forever. The presentation will cover the natural and organic beekeeping practices that support honeybees for years to come.
There will be a $10 materials fee for adults, $5 for seniors (60 and up) and students (with valid student ID). Please arrive 15 minutes early to register. Pre-registration is not required. For directions, see the PAH website at www.practicalagricultureforhamakua.com.
