Waimea families and friends are invited to Malaai: The Culinary Garden of Waimea Middle School 9-11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 29 as Jenny Bach shares her knowledge about the amazing wonders of bees and bee guardianship.

Jenny is a seasoned bee keeper and has a deep understanding of the important work honey bees perform in sustaining agricultural health and also how we can best use and support them. It’s free — bring friends and family.

This is one of a series of workshops planned in coming months to encourage home food gardens.

It’s co-hosted by Malaai, the Hawaii Island School Garden Network (HISGN) and The Kohala Center.

For info and to register, email or call 936-2117.

Also on Saturday will be another of Malaai’s weekly Crop Share events from 12:30-3 p.m. Bring extra fruit or veggies from your garden, or just come lend a hand and take home fresh produce. It’s all free and delicious.

It, too, is sponsored by Malaai working in partnership with HISGN, The Kohala Center, Hawaii Community Foundation’s West Hawaii Fund and Kaiser Permanente Hawaii.

For more information about Malaai’s Crop Share, call Nicole Milne (987-9210) or email

To go to Malaai for the bee workshop or Crop Share, it’s easiest to enter the Waimea Middle School campus via the new gravel entry drive opposite Kahilu Theatre. There is plenty of parking.
