Visiting Heathcote

 

We have found that the best way for people to get a taste of our community life is to join us for a community work day. This works well because most of us are here and we are able to talk and share while working together. We have community work days during our regularly scheduled visitor days.  The upcoming visitor days are:  October 28, 2017.  

TO SCHEDULE YOUR VISIT, USE THE REGISTRATION FORM.
