North Georgia Solitaries is the creator of the Pagan Assistance Fund, a program designed to give resources and aid to Pagan families in crisis and assist other organizations in the community that bring aid and comfort to Pagans in need.

Some of our current projects are below:

  • Toys for Yule - We are collecting new, unwrapped toys for Pagan children for Yule. We will be collecting these toys all year. You can drop your toys off at any booth at Pagan Events that are ran by a member of the Atlanta Pagan Round Table, or at any booth ran by North Georgia Solitaries. [A list of members and booths, while not complete, will be provided. This list will be constantly changing, so keep checking back!]

  • Compassion Crafts - We will be taking donations of knitted or crocheted caps, scarves, blankets, etc. for Pagan chemotherapy patients, elderly and others who's bodies don't keep them warm enough. We will also be taking donations of yarn and other knitting and crochet supplies. You can turn them in to any of the below members/booths/locations.

  • Church of the Spiral Tree (CST) Pagan Prisoner Ministry- We are collecting paper, envelopes and stamps to assist the Church of the Spiral Tree in getting their newsletter in the hands of inmates that have requested it. We are holding a book drive to help get Pagan and Wiccan books into the libraries in the Prisons. Any books will do. We will take non-pagan books and swap them on swap sites or sell them on Amazon to turn them into Pagan or Wiccan books. You can turn them in to any of the below members/booths/locations.

  • Tabs for Pagan Assistance Fund - Bring your can tabs and we will turn them in to recycle and let that money go into the Pagan Assistance Fund. You can turn them in to any of the below members/booths/locations.

  • Publications - We are putting together a recipe book, spell book, ritual book, children's activity book, and coloring book to use as a fundraiser. We would like to have submissions from all over the community to fill these books.
Please visit the Pagan Assistance Fund for more info on what we're up to!

Red Top Mountain State Park

Last year, Pagan Pathways Festival was held at Litha, also at Red Top Mountain. It was a wild event with a larger turnout than we had expected. We had very wonderful volunteers helping us out, and Lady Chris spared no expense in making sure that North Georgia Solitaries' first annual Pagan Pathways event went off without a hitch. It was a huge success!

The nature of Pathways, originally called "Turning of the Wheel" was to have one per season, so now as we make our way around the wheel we come to Yule! This year Pagan Pathways will be hosting a Party for Yule at Red Top Mountain State Park. It's sure to be loads of fun! We are always striving to take the next step forward and to help the community and its resources grow! If you're interested in helping to plan or organize this event, please contact Lady Charissa.

Proceeds go to the Pagan Assistance Fund.

All over the world, local coordinators host Pagan Pride celebrations. Pagan Pride Day fosters dignity in Pagan identity through education, activism, charity, and community.

Atlanta’s 2010 Pagan Pride Day event included a public gathering where Pagans could network with each other as well as a food drive to share our abundant harvest with others in need. Atlanta Pagan Pride Day benefits the Atlanta Community Food Bank by asking participants to bring a minimal donation of non-perishable food, collected on Pagan Pride Day and delivered to the Food Bank.

There were also merchant booths, classes, music and dance performances, and many other activities.

About the National Pagan Skills Leadership Conference

For the past six years, the National Pagan Leadership Skills Conference has been a collaborative effort by five Pagan Community Organizations. Beginning in 2004, the groups worked together to produce a conference designed to address the growing need for practical skills in the Pagan Community. Hosted in Richmond, Virginia, the PLSC has provided intensive instruction on such subjects as Event Planning, Non-Profit Accounting, Publicity and Public Relations, Conflict Resolution, Group Facilitation, Legal Issues, Campus Organization, Pastoral Care, and more. The conference has always been open to all who are interested in shaping the future of the Pagan Community, regardless of their individual or organizational tradition, path, or affiliation.

Since 2000, Pagan Community Organizations across the Mid-Atlantic have been hosting annual interfaith leadership conferences to collaborate on defining and meeting identified needs. What we learned was that there was no shortage of passionate people in the Pagan Community who are willing to do what it takes to help our community grow even farther, and that, despite what many Pagans believe, we can work together towards common goals while still respecting our various differences. We also discovered that there was a great need for the practical leadership skills involved with building and running a Pagan Community Organization.

In 2004 and 2005, four organizations -- Carolina Spirit Quest, The DC Radical Faeries, The Open Hearth Foundation, Inc, and PagaNet, Inc. -- came together to design and host a training conference to teach classes specifically tailored to meet the specialized needs of covens, churches, groves, circles, land sanctuaries, community centers, and social organizations. Many present and future leaders joined us for intensive, "nuts and bolts" training in the skills needed to create, maintain, and strengthen local Pagan Community Organizations.

The project was an overwhelming success. We don't really remember any decision involved in continuing; we just didn't stop. The work involved in putting on a four-day conference is considerable, but each year we leave excited about the next. We now are planning as far as three years ahead, and rotating classes so that returning attendees always have new material to learn.

We like to think that our continued existence is proof that with the proper skills and planning, the Pagan community can accomplish amazing things. We have successfully negotiated hotel contracts because we understand event planning and legal skills. We attract new attendees each year with Publicity and Public relations. We are able to budget carefully thanks to non-profit accounting. Our organizational structure is such that we are not dependent on any single individual or group for success. When PagaNet, Inc. began changing its focus, they withdrew from the planning committee, and we were able to adjust to the change without complication or drama. Our relationship with PagaNet (now LISTEN Media, Inc.) remains strong, and they continue to sponsor the conference. Beginning with the 2007 conference, we invited SpiralGround, whose founders had been underwriters and volunteers since the beginning, to join the planning committee.

Partly because of the training that the planning groups and their governing Boards have received over the years, these organizations have become busy, productive, and focused on meeting the needs of their own members, and in 2009, the decision was made to disband the intergroup agreement and have the conference produced by a private company owned and operated by people who have been intimately involved with PLSC and its planning since the beginning. With the full support and interaction of the original planning groups, Eldritch Ventures is responsible for the 2010 National Pagan Leadership Skills Conference, with a continuing commitment to the original mission & vision, but with more freedom to invest the time, attention and resources required to make attendance at PLSC a worthwhile investment that is relevant, significant, and valuable to each registrant.

Come share the excitement, expand your horizons, enrich your vision, and develop your leadership skills with us at the 2010 NPLSC... Help us Build a Leadership Bridge to the Future!

Grandmother Elspeth: “It all started with a favorite dream: having Emerald Rose sing at my birthday party! However, that seemed like a small and selfish wish for such a BIG BIRTHDAY– 81 years! Since the focus of both my private and public life is waking people up to their potential power and thereby shifting the future, I looked in that direction for an event theme. When we learned about the Tempest Smith Foundation, we found a kindred spirit, an organization compatible with our perspectives. A music festival (along the lines of the Clearwater Festival) seemed a good way to combine it all. Thus was born the idea of celebrating a birthday with ceremony, earth/environmental education, and music. With this we could achieve several goals:

  • To get lots of folks together to network and form communities
  • To encourage people of all ages to jam, perform, and enjoy great music.
  • To offer challenging earth-centered, people-oriented workshops that were both entertaining and educational.
  • To celebrate my 81st Birthday in a fabulous way!
“We invite you to be a part of this wonderful event!

“Come as a musician, scheduled or not, come as a workshop presenter, come as a songwriter, come as a vendor, come to have fun with people who are changing the world – one note at a time.”

We have recently noticed Pagan events slipping into modern technology themes with recorded music dance parties and adult only themes. While we agree that the dance parties are fun and consenting adults should be allowed to do what they want, we would like to try to preserve the Pagan events of a few years ago the way we remember them.

About Dragon Hills

Dragon Hills is a primitive campground, however electrical hookups, flush toilets and showers are in limited availability. Bring your tent and camping gear, or camper (no hookups). The site boasts a short order restaurant run by land managers James and Rita Middleton. The land is hilly and some of the pathways are rocky. We recommend bringing some hard sole shoes. Events have been held at Dragon Hills for many years. This Private Property facility is a place full of memories for many of us and serves as a home away from home. For rental of the (limited) onsite cabins and tents, please contact Rita Middleton at
