Heroes to Hives

2023 Online Program

The online portion of the Heroes to Hives program moved from Michigan State University to Michigan Food & Farming Systems (MIFFS). Veterans, Reservists, Active Duty, or National Guard members of the U.S. Armed Forces are eligible for the program, and they are allowed to enroll their adult children, spouses, partners and caregivers. Registration for the 2023 online program closed on February 28th, 2023. MIFFS will email enrolled participants educational content monthly from March 2023 through November 2023.

MSU Extension creates educational materials for participants in the Heroes to Hives program and holds Heroes to Hives beekeeping workshops.
