We come to the Well, and 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
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..
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.
As of December, 2023 our grove has raised $$$ for the following:
- 5062 trees planted to green our Earth
- 383,000 baby oysters seeded to purify the waters of the Chesapeake
- $1,635.00 raised to restore the American Chestnut.
- $475.00 raised of Action Aid USA for their work helping to feed the people of Ukraine.
- $750.00 raised for the Assateague Island Alliance in honor of the Mari Lwyd & Epona .
- $100.00 raised for the MD Food Bank
- $260.00 raised for Passport Animal Rescue for helping the 2 abandoned kitties that showed up on the porch of our grove.
- $164.00 for Blue Check Ukraine a Ukrainian based charity.
Assateague Island Alliance
Assateague Island Alliance partners with the Assateague Island National Seashore to promote the awareness and protection of the island’s wildlife and natural resources for the enjoyment of current and future generations.
Blue Check Ukraine
BlueCheck Ukraine identifies, vets, and fast-tracks urgent financial support to Ukrainian NGOs and aid initiatives providing life-saving and other critical humanitarian work on the front lines of Russia’s war on Ukraine. They have the proximity, local knowledge and access to assist those in desperate need. But they need help.
