A Message from the ADF Mother Grove

Standard
A Statement from the ADF Mother Grove on the discovery of the remains of children outside of former Canadian residential schools:
With the discovery of the remains of 215 children outside of the former Kamloops residential school in the community of Tk’emlúps te Secweìpem, in present-day British Columbia, Canada, we in ADF wish to share our deepest condolences with those Indigenous communities who are grieving. We recognize and honour the stolen lives of these children and the countless others whose lives have been impacted by Canada’s residential schools.
As people who spiritually build a connection with the land on which we reside, we abhor and denounce the mistreatment of the primary caretakers of this land, the first peoples of Turtle Island.
We pray for true reconciliation for our Indigenous kin. May those who have suffered find justice and peace. And may we all continue to build right relationships with each other.

CedarLight Fundraisers

Standard
CedarLight has been several running fundraisers:
  • to plant trees through American Forest Foundations since 2017
  • to seed oysters in the Chesapeake Bay through the Chesapeake Bay Foundation since 2018 and
  • to support the American Chestnut Project through the American Chestnut Foundation to bring back this tree whose range once extended from Canada to Florida all along the eastern areas of North America.

These are our totals so far from our efforts.

American Forests: 3591 trees planted
Chesapeake Bay Foundation: 170,600 baby oysters released
American Chestnut Foundation: $410.00 donated. We just started this one in 2020.
If you are considering donating to CedarLight, please consider one of our fundraising projects…
for the Earth Mother and the Sacred Waters.
Thank you

Sunday, Feb 21

Standard
Hi all, CedarLight will be hosting our Sunday morning events by Zoom only tomorrow (Feb 21) due to very cold conditions tomorrow morning. We can’t set up inside due to covid and it’s going to be too cold to set up the electronics outside so it’s just easier on everyone if we do this on Zoom. You can join us on Zoom through the posted link on our Events calendar shortly after 10am. Bring your favorite morning drink and join us for conversation and our short Walk with the OldOnes at 11:30am. You can come and or go at any time, Sundays are very informal. We don’t have anything planned for afternoon discussion but we can certainly chat for a bit if you like.
