Hudson Gardner on the Dosewallips river


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. I've worked on farms and ranches across the USA, from Maine to Washington State, pursuing a connection with landscapes.

My current work is about coming closer to wildness. I live in Vermont.

A Favorite Poem

What May Work

Old pine-fir canyon.

A braiding stream,
and fifteen cold crossings.

Pitching tent in solstice night dark.
Boiling tea on spent orange embers.
Venus through the aspen tops.

    "So many things
​                    leave words behind..."

Leaning on a rock,
