Artists are always welcome at the Gardens


 This beautiful 5 x 7 oil painting was painted here in the Garden yesterday by local artist Lori McNamera. She was joined in the Garden by a few other local artists who painted and sketched in different areas of the Garden.  We are so happy to have them join us and enjoy watching them work.


Shopping Online

Shopping online is a way of life and not just at the holiday’s.  All year round, people shop online for the convenience and time saving that we have all grown accustomed too.  There are many shopping sites who want to give back to local charities and non-profits as a thank you to their customers.  One of those sites is Amazon.com.  If you shop with Amazon, you have an option when you log in, to go to Amazon Smile, and pick a charity or non-profit that you like.  Heathcote is on that list and if you designate us as your charity, a small portion of your purchase comes back to Heathcote every month, all year long.  Books for your Kindle, gifts and lots more.  So please think about taking this simple step before your next purchase on Amazon.com

Thank you
