This hat is part of the Medicine Hat series: healing our relationship to the wild.
As we look to the wild, we are inundated with stories of loss: loss of species, diversity, and regard. But we also see stories of hope, dedication, and resilience. Our hats pay respect to some of those stories and support Mad Agriculture’s work to bring the wild back into consideration on the farm.
