Coming Fall 2019!

After the summer heat wanes and the desert revisits its autumnal beauty and cooler temps, Rebel Herbal will offer exploratory outdoor adventures in the Sonoran Desert and other bioregions of Arizona.

Our excursions will range from easy 2 hour plant walks for the curious plant person to multi-night backpacking trips for the adventurer who wants to build on their outdoor and herbal skills.

Rebel Herbal’s goal is to provide a safe outdoor immersion experience with the plants that grow all around us. Each trip will introduce you to new green beings you have perhaps not met, and build your experiential knowledge of bio-regional plant medicine, ethnobotany, and stewardship, through direct contact with the plants themselves.

Stay tuned for curriculum options, descriptions, dates, fees, and more!

Your excursion will be led by Candice Cook, a trained herbalist based in Scottsdale, Arizona. Candice brings abundant outdoor and herbal education experience, she completed a 700 hour herbal training program in 2009 and has been certified in Wilderness First Aid. She is skilled at planning long distance adventures as well as educational curriculum for groups – she has hiked over 500 miles on the Appalachian Trail, and led students through the desert in search of indigenous plants and their stories.
