The Hedgerow is a small scale project focused on connecting people with the land. It is run by Hawthorn McCracken, an herbalist, horticulturist, and peer educator. I currently live and work in the occupied homelands of the Ho Chunk people.
I provide consultations in landscape design, permaculture, and herbalism. My work combines scholarly disciplines and relationship-building. I am a witch and gardener of European descent, working to create new traditions and honor the old. In the tradition of the village witch, I offer my services for cash, barter, or trade
Find your roots & grow wild
Permaculture principles emphasize the use of marginal spaces. Often the mixed ecosystem of a savanna or wood’s edge has more abundant plant and animal life than either the forest or the grassland — because members of both communities can move through the shared marginal space. In nature, diversity is a strength. By creating a sacred space in which beings of many types are welcome, the Hedgerow aims to make life a little bit more wild, weird, and free.
