But we often overlook the extremely important role honeybees play in agriculture.  So on Wednesday, July 14 at Alan Wong’s Honolulu will host the next edition of its Farmer Series dinners. The theme is “Bee Sustainable” and the restaurant will highlight the honeybees, honey and the fruits of summer.
