How to Join Our Grove
Attend at least one of our public rituals and one study group session. Then express your desire to join our Protogrove as a member, fill out our contact sheet and make a monthly donation.
A.D.F. membership is separate and highly recommended. Through our association with A.D.F., we have access to many resources. Click here to learn more.
Or you can peruse our grove's reading list and suggested site links.
All levels of membership are invited to attend our frequent workshops and seminars on Druidry and Neo-paganism. Members are also invited to volunteer to help, host and teach at various events.
Groves throughout A.D.F. have different ways of labeling their membership levels. Some call it lay member, junior member or full member. We chose to call them Kith, Kin and Elder for aesthetic reasons.
Are you a Drubie who wants to be a Groovie? Drubies (dru-BEEZ) are druid newbies and Groovies (gru-O-veez) are groovy grove members. Check out this helpful article at ADF's website.
We can help you learn more about what Neopagan Druidry entails and can direct you to other sources of paganism like Asátru, Wicca, Church of All Worlds, Shintoism, Voodoun, Ifa, etc. All it takes is an open mind and some dedicated reading. Join us at our monthly workshops to learn a bit about how we practice our faith. We have an extensive reading list and a list of books we feel provide questionable information.
We highly recommend starting ADF's Dedicant Program. We have mentors available to assist you in your journey towards this goal. This program is also the basis of our monthly workshops. To learn more about how to get started or about our study programs, visit the study program page.
"So what do I get by being a member?" That's a good question. Here are a few things we think are of value with Kin level membership in our grove.
