“This is a great example of how the smallest things in an ecosystem really matter. Participation in the beehive program is a down payment on food security.” -Chancellor Straney

Dignitaries gathered at the UH Hilo Farm Laboratory on June 25 for the groundbreaking of the bee garden: (l-r) Dean William Steiner (UH Hilo College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Natural Resource Management); Kekoa Yasuda (student beekeeper); Chancellor Don Straney; Dr. Lorna Tsutsumi (CAFNRM); State Rep. Clift Tsuji; Chef Alan Wong; and State Senator Gil Kahele.

Chef Alan Wong has teamed up with University of Hawai‘i at Hilo to build awareness of the critical plight of honey bees and to promote local solutions to sustaining the honey bee industry. You can help by adopting a beehive at UH Hilo and supporting the research and development of healthy beehive practices in Hawaii!
