A New Addition to Heathcote’s Children Educational Programs

Heathcote would like to give a big thank you to Sam Comer, of Hayslip Landscape, for donating stone benches to create an outdoor classroom for children.  Located next to our Pioneer House, the benches rest beneath a roof of shady oak branches.  They make a perfect natural spot for Educator Nan Billings to conduct her unique classes.

 

Nan Billings offers a wide variety of Children Education classes.

In Memory of James J. Smith

On June 30th, we were informed that James J. Smith, Bonsai Master, had passed away.
In 2009 Jim gave Heathcote Botanical Gardens a generous gift of one hundred tropical bonsai, making Heathcote Botanical Gardens the site of the largest public collection of tropical bonsai in the United States.

 He will be missed by Heathcote as well as the Bonsai community.

Heathcote extends condolences to the family and friends of the world-renowned Bonsai Master Jim Smith.

Arrangements are in the process and will be announced when they are finalized.
