Meet Mike Hanes – Helical Outpost’s “Spotlight On Veterans” Program.
Our veteran heroes, who sacrificed so much for our country, sometimes return home to minimal support and low job prospects.
Today, many have found a new path working with Helical Outpost. This new opportunity as a hydroponic farmer, building sustainable communities and new products and grocery ready produce stems from their skills and training as military service personnel.
