מה נעשה

This experience is an introduction to the diversity of desert ecosystems of the Mojave Desert or the Colorado Desert. There is an added time for travel to the site of up to 30 minutes. We will explore the desert landscape, learn more in depth about the native plants along with an introduction to herbalism. Guest must provide their own transportation.

Hikes are customized to ones level of experience or comfort. If there are any health issues or concerns please inform me in advance.

The hike will start with an introduction honoring the ancestral homelands. We will be hiking in some stunning areas while learning about native flora, identifying flora using morphological characteristics, learn about desert ecology. You will be meeting many medicinal plants / wild foods and have an opportunity to taste some of the herbal preparations I have made with the cultivated flora. Guest will re-engage their sense of smell and taste to identity herbal energetics, thermal energetics, learning how to identify uses based upon organoleptics.

For the Native Plant Tea portion, we will sip on teas made with native plants and explore traditional and contemporary herbal uses.

Each guest is asked to sign a liability waver prior to the event.

Christina is very connected to the land and the life of the area. If you seek knowledge of the native landscape and local history I highly suggest meeting Christina. It was a beautiful and unique experience that I would gladly do again.

Christina knows her stuff.... and has a lot to share in a short amount of time. She works to engage her guests by encouraging them to participate in the experience... asking them, what they see, what they smell, what they taste, what they feel. The desert is an amazing ecosystem and Christina does a good job of explaining why.

This trip was definitely something special for me. It was going great until I suddenly passed out and split my eyebrow open (completely my problem) and Christina was able to use her very own plant medicines she was teaching us about to first aid me. Even as I was half passed out on the ground it was actually incredible to see. She treated me with so much care, including driving me out of the park, and I am so grateful for that. Plus she’s just the coolest person, and if you are considering going on this trip, you won’t regret it.

So much more than a nature hike with tea! What a privilege to explore the Joshua Tree forest with the benefit of this introduction to its unique flora. Passionate and knowledgable Christina engaged us with generous samples of her handcrafted healing oils, glycerines, hydrosols, and teas and by challenging us to discover our own intuitive relationship with plants. A skillful curator of botanical magic and a teacher with a cause, Christina delivers a tea experience that feels more like an educational wine tasting--after meeting the plants that made the teas we're tasting! We found the experience grounding and felt so glad we began our week with Christina so that we will know the names of the plants and better appreciate the majesty of the Joshua Tree on all our hikes.

Can’t recommend a hike & tea with Christina highly enough. She’s a brilliant, easygoing, generous guide and the morning was perfect. Great lessons, great tea, very clear directions, and a LOVELY introduction to botanical concepts and knowledge.
