PERMACULTURE & HOMESTEADING
Central Texas has its own unique environment. With hot dry summers, freezing temperatures in winter and flash flood rainstorms. The problem can be the solution if you create a design for your specific area.
Sharing knowledge that our ancestors depended on for daily survival. We will host workshops on Wild edibles, fire starting, primitive pottery, making natural rope and others.
We are exploring sustainable construction techniques for our small off-grid cabins. We have finished out a solar powered Container Workshop and we just broke ground on a "Aircrete" cabin in August 2020.

A BIT ABOUT US
Founded by brothers in 2015 to honor of our mother Cynthia Wadsworth Cook who's love of plants and animals inspired us to start Camp Scissortail Eco Retreat. This is a place for our family and friends to gather as well as a place to learn homesteading skills, green building, and Permaculture principles.
Located in the historic small town of Hubbard Texas. Founded in 1895, Hubbard became famous for its natural mineral water springs and health resorts.
