OBOD’s Golden Anniversary Grove

‘The Leaves of the trees speak with air.
In the heart of wood is the seed of fire.’

2014 is the 50th year of The Order of Bards Ovates & Druids. We have asked ‘Trees for Life’ in Scotland to plant a sacred grove to commemorate this anniversary, and have started the project with a donation of 98 trees. We’re calling it ‘Nuinn’s Grove’ after the Druid name of our founder, Ross Nichols. Have a look at the special web-page for this grove here. You’ll see that you can donate a tree for just £5 and ask for a dedication to be read out at its planting. The Order has 17,000 members, a mailing list of 10,000 newsletter susbscribers, and 16,000 listeners to our podcast every month – if every one donated a tree we could plant a whole forest with many sacred groves in it! Wouldn’t that be wonderful?!  Do help make this vision a reality, if you can, by gifting at least one tree now and spreading the news! Trees for Life have made the process incredibly simple!

  1. What a great idea! This is fabulous, have just made my donation. I know the area up there quite well and will enquire to them and another similar organisation to be more involved, i.e, as ‘trees *are* life’ – lol!

  2. Made a donation too, in the name of the Lothlorien-Nemeton Grove in Spain.
    May we live to see all the forests of the world grow again.
    Bright Blessings!

  3. Collecting funds at our Equinox celebration tomorrow – will be donating in the name of Cylch Draig in Citrus Heights, California – blessings /|
