This Summer, we welcomed a new addition to the Kingsbridge Heights Community Center (KHCC) family – bees!
The beehive was transferred to the roof of KHCC’s main site in June, and our Garden and Volunteer Manager has been learning the basics of beekeeping!
The new residents have already started pollinating, producing honey and bees wax. With this new hive, we hope to educate students on the life cycle and practices of bees.
We also hope to produce honey and beeswax for community use and consumption.
About Kingsbridge Heights Community Center
The Kingsbridge Heights Community Center (KHCC) was founded in 1974 by a group of passionate community organizers. The group was led by three neighborhood women: Mary McLoughlin, Patricia Burns, and Janet Athanasidy.
Upon hearing in 1972 that the 50th Precinct was moving out of its turn-of-the-century building on Kingsbridge Terrace, the three jumped at the opportunity to realize their vision for a community center.
KHCC provides resources to empower Bronx residents from cradle to career to advance education and well-being for a vibrant community. We achieve this in an environment that fosters academic milestones, literacy, mental health support, nutrition, technology, and the arts.
