StarHaven Services and the Gardens of Avalon Pagan Activist Site have now seen over ten years of continuous service on the web, following a prior seven years on FidoNet as The Gardens of Avalon BBS, with very pleasing results! Thank you, everyone, for your participation. Enter and be welcome.
Avalon is as much political and economic as religious in its activism. Follow these links to the National Libertarian Party to see what we believe and why.
If you feel your freedoms aren't being eroded daily, then
Napster is now a PAY service with only a shadow of its former capability. And KaZaa (the whole FastTrack network) is so riddled with fakes and malware as to be impractical for anyone to use. For alternatives, go here:

In association with PODSNET, the Pagan/Occult Distribution System, The Gardens of Avalon began on Lammas, 1992 as a Fidostyle Technology Network (FTN) BBS serving the pagan spiritual community in San Antonio, Texas.
The Gardens of Avalon III web site is neither a teaching, tradition sharing, nor a "how-to" service. Rather, it is a communications medium offered to link information services together with technology to provide a comprehensive contact and reference point for the pagan and alternative communities, particularly those in need of assistance in rooting out, exposing and challenging institutional prejudice against them and their ways of living.
Avalon's mission includes a patently activist role to keep open lines of communication between pagans and alternative cultures in a time when changing legislation could reduce or curtail the liberties of free speech and religion, as is occurring in many countries even now. Please see our "Northern Watchtower" page for examples of our continuing efforts to expose and fight discrimination, supression and denigration of our ways through the uses of law, fiat, economic pressure, and even the sheer weight of numbers. If you become aware of a site or situation warranting mention here, please let us know, and we'll get out the word.
While we know that not all pagans are alike, we like to share whatever we have in common, and to revel in the differences. Therefore, we also provide contact links to our visitors so to educate, entertain, and connect our ever growing community. Please visit the "Watchtower" pages to see some of these outstanding links.
We hope you'll visit often, bring your friends, and suggest improvements to the site.

The Pagan/Occult Distribution System, 1990-1999
Once called the Cyber Pagan's First Home and Safe Haven, The Pagan/Occult Distribution System was founded in 1990 as an FTN distribution system dedicated to the widespread distribution of pagan and pagan friendly spiritual and practical information. It was a springboard for many of the fine pagan pages you now see on the web. Recently though, this once vital and active network has passed into the mysts. Please take a moment to reflect on its bright history, and dare to hope for the chance of its revival in another form, another time.
