Living Sustainably ... Together.

Heathcote is an intentional community located 30 miles north of Baltimore, MD and 20 miles south of York, PA. It is nestled in a narrow wooded stream valley on a 44 acre community land trust plus a 68 acre plot of woods that's owned by some of our members. We are a community of friends and family who choose to live cooperatively and consciously create a better way of life. We strive to care for one another and for the natural systems that nurture us. Our diet is organic and vegetarian.

Welcome to the Heathcote "online community". Please join our email list to receive updates about upcoming events at the community. If you have any questions about the site or suggestions, please email Paul at

What's New at Heathcote


June 2014

We have lost and are losing a few more members.  John and Mary are now gone, and Nick and Rachel are in the process of moving on.  We also lost our gardener, Julie (although Betsy is doing a great job replacing her).  So if you've been thinking about living in community, now is a great time to apply to be a Heathcote member!

Also, we're working on preparations for our 50th anniversary, coming up next year.  Stay tuned for the announcement for a BIG PARTY to celebrate!
