Cross Timbers is a non-profit educational institute. We were conceived in April of 1994 when Bill Mollison was invited to teach a two week permaculture design course at the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Glen Rose, Texas. The institute was incorporated and granted non-profit determination as of January, 1995. Its founders are Jack Rowe, Inger Myhre and Kirby Fry.
Cross Timbers has been relocated from Glen Rose to Rainbow Hearth, near Marble Falls, Texas.
"Permaculture philosophy is one of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation, rather than protracted and thoughtless action; of looking at systems in all their functions rather than asking only one yield of them; of allowing systems to demonstrate their own evolution." (Mollison '90)
The Cross Timbers Permaculture Institute's mission is to implement and teach sustainable living practices in north central Texas, and to help people make the transition from discovering permaculture and sustainability to living it.
Many of us would like to discuss and learn more about earning a sustainable livelihood. Please send us any ideas or success stories that you may have. Cross Timbers is also collecting information about job training, apprenticeships and careers in professions which are both sustainable and rewarding to their practicioners.
Cross Timbers shares interests with many other exciting web sites around the world.
