Beekeeping for Veterans – A Journey into Mindfulness and Sustainability
June 19 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
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.
