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.

Seeing Rural America Through a Clearer Lens

In an interview with Shelterforce editor Miriam Axel-Lute, Jim King of FAHE in Appalachia and Bill Bynum of HOPE in the Mississippi Delta, two longtime LISC partners, discuss the challenge of persistent poverty in rural communities. Investing in rural areas—and dispelling stereotypes about them—they argue, is critical for the health of the entire country.

The Warmth of Family, the Taste of Mexico

We launch our celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month this year with the story of the Villegas family, owners of Los Originales Tacos Árabes de Puebla in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles. Natives of Puebla, Mexico, Merced and Alfredo Villegas run one of the city’s most beloved food trucks, and are emblematic of Hispanic immigrants to the U.S. who have not only enriched the cultural, social—and culinary—terrain of this country, but stoke the economy through their energetic entrepreneurship, creativity and resilience.
