This experience is a beautiful hands-on introduction to herbalism, herbal preparations, plant medicine and the diverse desert ecosystem and flora of the Mojave Desert. We will meet at either Cactus Mart in Morongo Valley or Frontier Cafe in Yucca Valley where we will caravan a short distance to the location. Each hike is customized to the hikers level of experience. If there are any health issues or concerns please inform me in advance. We will start the hike with an introduction into the area and the Indigenous history. We will be hiking in some stunning areas filled with striking flora where you will learn about the field characteristics of the flora, identifying many flora and learn about our diverse desert ecosystems and ecology. You will be meeting many medicinal plants and wild food and have an opportunity to taste some of the herbal preparations I have made with the local flora. I will discuss contemporary medicinal and culinary uses Closing the plant hike, I will be guiding you on how to create your own herbal non-alcohol glycerite with a plant that I will provide. I will provide the items needed for this. Just so you know hikes will not take place in the JTNP nor the Pioneertown Mountain Preserve. There will also be no wild harvesting of any plants and as much as I would love to bring furry friends, pets can not join us.
