Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal-Related, Animals, Education, Food, Food, Agriculture & Nutrition, Military & Veterans Organizations, Veterans

Mission: Become part of the team! What our organization is formed to do is provide veterans the setups to start a therapeutic agriculture based hobby in the safety and security of their own backyard. This could be having a bee hive, garden, pond, or a flock of chickens. We will provide the startup “kits” and provide the education and guidance to help make them successful. This can also lead them into a small business of their own by removing unwanted bees, or selling eggs, flowers, fruit, vegetables, and honey at the local farmers markets. All efforts will be made to modify everything to a veteran’s physical disability that is unique to that veteran. Keeping chickens and and having a productive garden is not just for rural living anymore. The movement on urban agriculture is growing fast and is incredibly rewarding, fun, and educational for youth and adults alike.

Results: We are a fairly new organization with a solid foundation poised for great success with the help of people like you!

Target demographics: US Military Veterans & Family

Geographic areas served: Las Vegas, NV we will be expanding our support services as funds become available.

Programs: We provide backyard agricultural based startups to promote physical and therapeutic healing.

Dennis helped get us set up with a beehive and we look forward to his help with caring for and maintaining our bees. Dennis has been exceptionally helpful and is a friendly, personable resource every time we interact with him. I have no reason not to believe that he treats all of his contacts like he treats myself and my family and we are happy to highly recommend HVTBA to anyone who is interested in beekeeping, gardening, or other similar hobbies.
