Seed Groups

The songs of our ancestors are also the songs of our children. Philip Carr-Gomm, The Druid Way

A Seed Group can be formed by any member at any point in their studies. Each group is likely to be different, and they are designed to be informal and relaxed – giving members the opportunity to meet and meditate together, and to discuss the course, Druidry, and topics of mutual interest. Many groups celebrate the seasonal festivals together, and to attend a Seed Group you do not necessarily need to be a member of the Order. A Grove, by contrast, can only be formed by at least two members who are in the Druid grade. Then they are able to perform initiations for members into all three grades.

Members receive access to a full Directory in The Druid Hearth of all Seed Groups and Groves when they join.

There are Seed Groups in Scotland, Wales, England and Ireland, in the USA and Canada, in Europe, South America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.


Learn more about Druidry and how to join the order

The practice of Druidry used to be confined to those who could learn from a Druid in person. But now you can take an experience-based course wherever you live, and when you enrol on this course, you join the Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids, and begin an adventure that thousands of people all over the world have taken. It works with the ideas and practices of Druidry in a thoroughly practical, yet also deeply spiritual way.
