We are primarily a Permaculture learning lab and living center on 55 acres in the Sam Houston Forest in Evergreen, Texas. Camping fees help us meet new people and pay our expense and improvement costs. 

We try to keep our camping sites in tree stands to keep the look and feel of pure nature as much as possible. 

Camp sites are assigned by the Camp Host not your site number. There is a pond on the property. The hike to the pond is a fairly easy trail. There are some trails for riding your bikesThere are many brushy areas for exploring. If you make it to the back of the property (bring your compass), there is a shallow creek year around. Bring your walking sticks, bikes, fishing poles and artificial bait, life jackets, canoe, kayak, raft, paddles. Only small fires in fire pits allowed. No fireworks are permitted.

Off-grid primitive camping is available year around.  Costs are $20 per night with your own off-grid camping equipment. Tent setup is on the forest floor. We grow and regenerate the soil using organic principles so no pesticides or chemicals permitted (You can apply bug spray with deet at your campsite).  City water is available to fill RV water tanks and containers near the Host shed.  Hot water is available upon request.  There is an open outdoor shower for public use available at the back of the shed.

We suggest a mosquito net for outdoor open sleeping. We suggest the following items be brought to make your experience more enjoyable: shower shoes, long sleeves, long pants, a hat, extra socks and close-toed shoes(rubber boots are nice), a rain coat, a compass, and walking sticks. In WINTER months we suggest clean loose fitting night time only socks, warm pajamas, and extra top sheet and blanket, a small foot blanket for inside your bedding, rubber boots, a warm hat and scarf and warm gloves. 

We will provide a portable potty for every 3 people and a fire ring.  Trash and recycling cans are available behind the shed and near the pond. A charcoal grill is available for use at no charge upon request on a first come first serve basis.

Activities included as part of your camping fees include a group evening farm tour and/or trip to the pond upon request, access to pond activities, fishing without a license, hiking and exploring the property, bike rides on trails.  Youth archery upon request.  As we get our tree guilds setup, any available fresh produce will be available on request for you to pick and eat during  your camping stay.  Call to see what will be available during your stay. Please send pictures of fun and unique things you do and see to @evergreen_guild on Instagram or Evergreen Guild on Facebook. 

If you like to participate in our farming activities, schedule to volunteer 1 hour on Saturdays between 8 am to 1 pm.

We look forward to sharing a little piece of heaven with you.
