Beekeeping for Veterans – A Journey into Mindfulness and Sustainability

June 19 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Beekeeping for Veterans

In celebration of Pollinator Week, and in recognition of PTSD Awareness Month, the Rhode Island College (RIC) Bee Education Center invites military veterans to explore the hobby of beekeeping as studies have shown it can help reduce the symptoms of PTSD.

Jim Murphy, sustainability coordinator at RIC who oversees the beehives at the college’s bee education center, will provide an overview of beekeeping and offer a hands-on experience at the hives. There will also be a tour of the greenhouse and campus   garden to learn about the role pollinators play in our food supply.

To learn more about the Rhode Island College Bee Education Center, visit RIC.edu/Bee-Education.

RSVP to Jim Murphy at jmurphy2@ric.edu or 401-456-8799.
