Welcome to the internet home of Sierra Madrone Grove, ADF!
Sierra Madrone Grove, ADF (SMG for short) is affiliated with and sanctioned by Ár nDraiocht Féin
(which is Irish Gaelic & is pronounced “arn ree-ocht fane”, and means “Our Own Druidry”), or ADF,
which is an international organization devoted to creating a public tradition of Neopagan Druidry.
This grants our Grove 501c3 nonprofit status.
Sierra Madrone Grove, ADF was founded in the Sacramento, CA area in March 2004,
and is a fully chartered ADF grove.

We assemble at 4:00 PM, and ritual begins at 4:30.
We do not close a circle, so you are allowed to arrive late;
we simply ask that you join us quietly.
We'd love for you to bring a dish to share in one of our famous post-ritual potlucks,
but no one will be turned away from the table for lack of contribution;
you'll find that our spread is always impressive and delicious,
and many food sensitivities are regularly taken into account.
Also, if you wish, feel free to bring a personal offering for any Ancestor,
Nature Spirit, or Deity of your choosing. We welcome you to pray at our good fire!
Where: Unitarian Universalist Society of Sacramento (UUSS)

You can find us in Room 12, which is around the back to the right,
& all the way at the end of the parking lot - look for our green & white sign;
