Without a specific heritage to claim as their birthright, people are rootless and consequently drift through life without knowing or understanding where they came from, who they really are, or where they’re truly going. It has also been said that without the solid foundation of heritage, it is not possible to build anything that will last and stay the course, and that includes a folk community. Although this applies to every racial group, in this short article I will be focusing primarily on the situation of the Indo-European Folk.
Members of the OR met up on Sunday 22nd August to help Hengest clear his new allotment and ready the plot for propagation. If you’ve never rented an allotment before, then you have no idea how much blood sweat and tears it takes to knock an overgrown and neglected plot into shape. My blistered hands and aching body are witness to how much work we did.
After being inspired by this years OR Great Moot and also by the sterling work carried out by The Guardians of The White Horse Stone (GOWHS), we the good Folk of Frey’s Beacon decided that we would become more pro-active in the coming cycle.
