Working organic farm
Great place to observe a working organic farm. Great educational opportunity to expose my son to how good is grown. Something that many urban kids are not exposed to.

Luxe cabin experience in a wonderfu
The rustic roots sanctuary is a really special place tucked into the outskirts of St Louis. Well-tended EVERYTHING from
Garden beds to farm sheds to the pristine bathroom shed with immediate and plentiful hot water for a shower and amenities, to the exceptionally well-appointed little lavender cottage that truly had everything I could need and more. I was only there for about 12 hrs but they were so restful and peaceful. Janett was an amazing host. When I head toast Louis again, I will stay here.
