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.

What's New at Heathcote

Upcoming Events

December 2013

It's been about a year since I've updated this column.  Sorry to be out of touch for so long.  A lot has happened in the last year.  We've had a couple of farmers help us out over the summer.  Patrick primarily, and Alex a bit too.  But now they've moved on and Julie has taken over as the lead farmer.  She and her two daughters have moved into the farmhouse where Kathy had lived (yes Kathy has moved on as well).

We've also had two weddings for Heathcoters.  In June Rachel and Nick got married here, and in October Mary and John were married.  They were both very fun, and they tended to take up lots of the community's attention during the planning.
