I would like to welcome you to the Heroes-To-Hive Classes page. Below you will find information on how to enroll into the On-Line Classes being conducted at Michigan State University-Extension. These Classes are free to All Veterans and their families to include any Family member of a Veteran.
These classes are conducted as a self-paced course...meaning you can finish this course as quickly as you would like. This class is also being conducted as a Hands-On training at the Maple City VFW Post 2406 in Charlotte, Michigan that goes along with the classes you are being taught on-line.
This gives the student a chance to not only learn about honeybees but to actually work with live ones too. The only difference with the hands-on classes is we will be going on field trips to catch swarms, do possibly cut-outs from structures and much more. We provide all the protection clothing and tools, so you won't have to purchase them for the class unless you want too.
With the Hands-On training we have currently 2 complete hives at the Charlotte VFW Post. There we practice on our hives what you learned in your on-line classes. The hands-on classes start on the 3rd Tuesday Night of every month from 6-8:00 pm and will begin in February and will run through November. This takes the student throughout the entire working days up to Winter.
