What you'll do

We will meet at Cactus Mart in Morongo Valley, CA. and caravan to a privately owned location. I have two locations and depending on group size, hiking experience we will either caravan to a privately owned 640 acre nature preserve sanctuary nestled in the Pioneertown foothills. After a brief tour of this off-grid sanctuary, we will begin by sipping on a tea made with a native local plant to explore its physical energetics and contemporary herbal uses followed with a hike into the wild lands of this sanctuary. Another location is at the Hidden Passage Guest Ranch in Morongo Valley CA. a wild place filled with so much plant diversity. On both hikes guest will meet native flora and learn about the diverse desert ecosystem. Along the way, I will introduce a variety of herbal preparations like herbal infused honeys, salves, oils, syrups, creams, glycerites, tinctures, and electuaries made with the local cultivated flora. This experience is a beautiful hands-on introduction to herbalism, herbal preparations, and the diverse desert ecosystem and flora We will be driving onto some dirt roads, if your car has low profile tires this may not be the experience for you. Please come dressed prepared for the weather.

Where you'll be

We will be hiking and exploring native plants in pinyon-juniper woodlands or creosote bush scrub and riparian zones. We will start the day with a plant tea exploration with a native plant, where we will delve into taste, physical energetics and herbal actions of the plant. I customize plant hikes to meet the guest hiking experience. This is a fun way to meet out desert flora and introduction to herbalism.
