We are all a part.


My name is Hudson Gardner.

I am a writer, photographer, and designer. I spend my best time outside: wildcrafting teas, medicine, cultivating plants, and backpacking in wild places.

My current work is about learning from and celebrating wildness. I live in the Mountain West.

Current Projects

Grass Journal is a podcast of interviews, poetry, and stories about wildness in the Anthropocene.
A Body of Water is a book of poems about an artists search for larger belonging, through hiking, farming, and a life lived outside.
