honeybeepollinatorThe Honeybee / Pollinator Expo 2010 will explore the current problems of bee health and pollinator consercation in Hawaii along with the proposed solutions to these important issues. The conference will cover the scientific and practical challenges of pollinator conservation in the local agricultural landscape and examine the changes that can be adopted to promote pollinator safety and sustainability in food production. International and local bee researchers will present their most recent findings at the conference, where they will be joined by local industry leaders of the beekeeping and agricultural community, making this gathering a great opportunity to learn from their leadership and experience regarding management and conservation of pollinators.

Demonstration booths will be open from 10 am to 3:30 pm. The participants include honey producers from various islands who will be providing free honey samples from their respective apiaries.

Between 11 am to 1 pm the students from the Kapiolani Community College chapter of Slow Food International will be providing samples of foods prepared using local honey.

Science teachers are encouraged to attend the conference and to join us at a breakout session to discuss curriculum development related to pollination and agriculture.
