Heroes to Hives

Online Program

Michigan Food & Farming Systems (MIFFS) runs the Heroes to Hives online program. 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.

For information about the Heroes to Hives online program, please visit MIFFS's Heroes to Hives webpage. Please direct questions to Adam Ingrao at adam@miffs.org.

Michigan State University (MSU) Extension contributed educational materials to the Heroes to Hives online program and holds Heroes to Hives beekeeping workshops. Participants in Michigan can visit MSU Extension's page on getting started with beekeeping in Michigan for additional opportunities outside of the Heroes to Hives program.
