News for the Adopt-a-Beehive Program
In January, Jonathan Zimmerman and his daughter, Clea, from New York City heard about the honey bees at the UH Hilo farm and requested a visit. It was a new experience for his daughter who had never been up close and personal with bees. She now has lots of stories to share with her class about her beekeeping adventure in Hawaiʻi and while on vacation compared to her classmates who braved the cold winter on the East Coast.
On February 8th, 11 students and two of their instructors from Tokyo Kasei University visited their adopted hive at the farm. The students enjoyed working with the bees and even got to harvest and sample honeycomb from their hive to take back to Japan.
Honolulu Magazine reported on the buzz of honey in Hawaiʻi. Included is the use of honey in dishes and Alan Wong’s association with the Adopt-a-Beehive program at UH Hilo.
