There is a lot happening at Heathcote these days. We've had several new people join us, which has brought our numbers up to 15 adults and 6 kids. Mike & Larissa, with their two boys Galen and Noah, have moved in and are now doing their provisional membership. Also Gloria has completed her 21-day visit and is waiting for the room in Polaris (the staw-bale building) to be ready for her to move into so she can start her provisional membership. We also have Betsy back, who used to be a member and is now back and taking over as lead gardener. And then we have Anne who will be joining us to start the membership process later this month, and Steve the intern who is thinking about applying for membership.
It's been really fun to start using the wood-fired cob hot tub. We've had a couple of hot-tub parties so far. We're still trying to figure out how to control the fire to get just the right temperature, but we're starting to get the hang of it.
