The Folk

Tara’s Folk Pin

A grove of Druids is not just a club or a study group.  Although one of our goals is to offer public Druidic rituals, we also aim to create a safe place for people to come together to celebrate, learn, and honor the Kindreds.  This takes effort and teamwork.  Our events are organized and lead by the Folk.  To become one of the Folk means that you continually give your time, your energy, and your love to make it a better place.  To become one of the Folk means that you are not only a member of ADF and Northern Rivers, but you continue to show interest and respect in the tradition.  To become one of the Folk means that you are responsible for Northern Rivers’ purpose and life.  To become one of the Folk means that you are part of a family – a tribe.

The Folk are the heart and soul of Northern Rivers Grove.
