Event Description

Do you want to know more about how bees help in our overall food culture and how you can help them thrive? 
This workshop, presented by Bill Hesbach, Master Beekeeper, will cover the origin of honey bees in North America and how they serve as a vital part of our food-chain and ecology. We will also cover some of the threats to honey bees and how each of us can help provide some forage and habitat for their survival. 

Bill Hesbach is a Connecticut native with a background in engineering.
His interest in beekeeping began in 1975, and after a career hiatus, he began to build a sideline bee business in Cheshire, CT where he now produces a crop of artisanal raw honey sold locally, along with other hive products. 
Bill teaches bee biology and basic beekeeping at meetings hosted by both the Backyard Beekeeping Association and the Conn Beekeepers Association and is a regular guest speaker at local beekeeping seminars in surrounding states.
His interests in beekeeping include queen bee production, and the connection between local flora and bee behavior.
He’s an Eastern Apiculture Society Certified Master Beekeeper and a graduate of the University of Montana's master beekeeping program. 
Bill is a published author and his articles on beekeeping can be found in both Bee Culture and BeeKeeping Magazine.

“Lifting As We Climb”: In South Minneapolis, a Historic Restoration Heals

In the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder, one South Minneapolis community convulsed in pain and suffered massive destruction. On Juneteenth this year, it celebrates the fruition of a project that speaks volumes about community agency and ownership, and how support from intermediaries, including LISC, can be profoundly transformative in building back stronger, and more equitably, than ever before.

D.C. Seniors Find a Supportive Home in New Affordable Assisted Living Community, with Help from LISC

A $2.1 million predevelopment loan from LISC helped Gragg Cardona Partners build The Residences at Kenilworth Park, an affordable housing complex adjacent to a wetlands preserve in Northeast D.C. offering supportive services for Medicaid-eligible and other qualified elderly residents 60 and older. The development meets high-quality accessibility standards and provides on-site certified nurses and aides, access to nature, community and nutritious food, among many other keys to well-being.

Pain into Purpose: Community Violence Intervention Workers Tell It Like It Is

For the second year in a row, the Department of Justice, in partnership with LISC, brought together hundreds of community violence intervention practitioners from across the country to share their experiences and insights on the front lines of gun violence and trauma. Their stories and wisdom are reshaping narratives about victimhood and perpetrators, and helping implement solutions to create safer, healthier communities.
