By the Well, the Fire, and the Tree
Providing Druid Fellowship and Services to Baltimore City and Beyond
Who We Are
We are CedarLight Grove, a church of Ár nDraíocht Féin, A Druid Fellowship. We hold weekly services and seasonal High Rites to honor the Earth and Her Kindred, support charitable, educational, and community service projects, and provide a religious home to those who wish to walk with the Old Ones.
Our beliefs and practices are based upon those of the ancient Indo-Europeans. We seek to ensure that a love for the Old Ways, as expressed in a comprehensive and inclusive polytheistic faith, is accessible and relevant to modern people.
We dedicate ourselves to create and maintain a safe, supportive, and tolerant religious community within which we may practice, study, and discuss Earth-based spiritual traditions. We strive to guard and serve the Earth, Her ecosystems, and to walk lightly upon Her.

Our Current Charity Initiatives
Twice a year, CedarLight members join the local community and Scouts to clean and maintain a local forgotten family cemetery. Service to the community, service to the Ancestors.
Four billion American chestnut trees were once found from Canada to Florida. It was one of the most important forest trees in the Eastern U.S. and considered the finest chestnut tree in the world. Brought to the brink of extinction by a non-native blight, CedarLight supports the American Chestnut Foundation's mission to restore the once-iconic American chestnut to our forests.
Oyster recovery is key Chesapeake Bay restoration efforts. One adult oyster can filter up to 50 gallons of water a day and feeds on harmful algae! CedarLight supports the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's efforts to purify our waters.
We strive to walk gently upon Earth and to restore and maintain the ecosystems the Kindred of Earth need and love. CedarLight supports American Forests in their mission to conserve and restore our forests.
As of 2021 quarter 4
- 4,123 trees planted to green our Earth
- 253,100 baby oysters seeded to purify the waters of the Chesapeake
- $930 raised to restore the American chestnut
We call out to the folk to help us in our endeavors. When at CedarLight, there are a donation cans near the entrance clearly marked for each charity. Or, donate through PayPal: firstname.lastname@example.org.
