Three Branch River Grove, ADF of Hampton Roads, VA was established to provide community, education and support to those seeking to follow a druid’s path in the Southeastern Virginia area through public rituals, study groups, writings, and community projects, and to actively present a positive face to the public for ADF, as well as earth-centric and Indo-European polytheist religions in general.
Founded in 1984, Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship, Inc. (ADF) is a federally recognized church. (For more information, go to www.adf.org) Ár nDraíocht Féin (Arn-REEOCHT-Fane) means Our Own Druidry in Irish Gaelic.
ADF rituals are open and public. One need not give up prior practices or affiliations to become a member of ADF or of our Grove. Our Grove hearths are Celtic and Germanic/Anglo-Saxon. Some rituals are Celtic and some Germanic/Anglo-Saxon. Druids of the past were the educated class of their time (doctors, lawyers, bards (reporters), artists, and priests). ADF continues that tradition with excellent study programs. Each member is encouraged to make ADF his or her own by following their own curiosity and inclination.
We look forward to hearing from you!
