Councilwoman Eileen O'Hara, who represents the fourth district in Puna, will be a guest speaker at our December 12 Christmas potluck meeting next Tuesday.
She will be addressing the current county zoning code and ordinance that determine on this island where we can and cannot keep bees.
She will also share information on how we can effect legislative change should we want to do this.
As most of us know, many beekeepers in Hilo must keep bees under the radar (and by the good graces of their neighbors!) It would be great if everybody could come out in the open, to be able to practice bee husbandry without fear of repercussions.
Please join in on our Christmas potluck to learn what we can do to improve the life of our island beekeepers.
