Eric and the Bees

9 mins


After 20 years in the U.S. military, Eric returns home and finds himself struggling with PTSD from combat. As he tries to make sense of what he did and saw, there is only one place where he finds solace — among his bees. In caring for his hives, he’s able to calm his mind and nurture several colonies — and invites other veterans and first responders to join him in experiencing the healing power of beekeeping.
