Hi to All,

I'm looking to connect with others in Saint Louis; I've started a family adventure school for very young families and am busily cultivating the next generation of leadership. 

If you are in Saint Louis, contact me at:  If you are not from Saint Louis, help cheer us on in lifting the Heartland.

Hello Everyone

I've been asked to locate and source advice and guidance about the humane killing and eating of animals as part of an outdoor session with children and young people.


I have been told by a friend that he thought this may be more common in the US. I'm particularly interested in know about small animals such as rabbits, chickens and fish.


Many thanks in advance
