We're having an enjoyable spring at Heathcote. Associate member Mick Vogt, with funding from his nonprofit Oberon Associates, led a project to revive a vernal pond where the frogs like to mate. Mick and several other community members cleaned out the pond and planted plants around it.

The Anacker and Lefever families probably met in 1956 when the Lefevers sent slides of their solar home and homestead to the School of Living (SOL) meeting which the Anackers attended. The Anackers realized the Lefever homestead was only about 25 miles north of their homestead at Maryland Line, so they came to visit. Through that visit, and more future activities, they became very close friends.
We’re enjoying another beautiful summer in the valley. Heathcote Community is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year and we are in the throes of planning a big party that is scheduled for October 10th.
The Great Bee Box Build of 2015 took place at the Heathcote Community on February 7, 2015. Seventeen men and women, some experienced beekeepers and some complete novices (“newbees”), gathered to start the process that will lead to a group of new beehives to be part of the Nucleus Hive Project of the Central Maryland Beekeepers Association. (CMBA). This project has the aim of both training new beekeepers and generating small complete bee colonies, known as nucleus colonies or “nucs”, for sales to beekeepers in our area.
