Master Gardeners beekeeping course held at the Urban Garden Center
This summer marked the inaugural offering of the Master Gardeners Introduction to Beekeeping course. Twelve Master Gardeners enrolled in the program, which lasts from June to January. Scott Nikaido, a graduate student from the bee project, has been providing instruction to the group, including hands on training using UH Honeybee project colonies located at the Urban Garden Center. This training program aims to provide MG with knowledge about honeybee health, but also impress the importance of pollination services to growers in Hawaii.
