Beekeeping 101Hawai’i has a rich tradition of natural medicine dating back more than 1000 years. In this class we will look at the history of plant medicines here from antiquity to the present day. An outline and history of Hawaiian medicine will be included with special focus on the 19th century uses of plants and historical documents. We will cover traditional and scientific uses of Hawaiian plant medicines from the Polynesian-introduced canoe plants to European introduced and  natives.

Besides being a wonderful, rewarding hobby this is a great ‘give back’ to Nature, supporting the survival of our small sisters who’ve supported human food production for years with their free pollination services, and now are challenged by the directions that human society has taken.  Great workshop for kids too.
