OUR STORY

Laurel, NewBEE

Beekeeping became an interest of mine after my husband and I started our hobby farm. Farming was a way for me to escape the city for a "simpler" life, as city life is an anxiety trigger for me. As my mentorship progresses the more I realize how calming and rewarding it is. It keeps my hands busy. Idle hands means a busy mind, and a busy mind is rarely a good thing for me. 

Testimonials

Jason, Mentor

I was medicating myself with lots of alcohol for awhile and I was on a path that was going to end badly. I quit the bottle and took up smoking bees. I just wanted a few hives fo play with and now I have around 40. I became a mentor for Hives for Heroes because I like helping other learn about bees.

Thomas, NewBEE

Although brief, my exposure in learning the life of bees has been a great bonding experience for my daughter and I, from which my time is a very limited commodity with. Looking forward to eventually starting my hive when I'm ready. 

Let's BEE connected!
