I'm a wimp though. And we aren't allowed guns. X

Anyone else tried this?

I appreciate you all taking your time to try and help me.

When you look deeply into my culture you find that we are very aware of the fact that we take lives so that we might live, it starts at the age of two.
We are exposed to what it takes to survive in the world and how we must give thanks to all who give their life so that we can live.
If we go to harvest food from plants, we first tell the plant why we are there, next is asking forgiveness for having to harm the being so that we can have the nourishment it will provide.
At that point we do what we must do swiftly so the being does not suffer needlessly and we then make use of all that was given to us so that nothing is wasted.
Once we have finished the harvesting, we give the earth mother gifts for providing the bounty of her efforts and we send up prayers for the fallen being(s) who gave their life for us to live.
For me, everything is alive, rock, grass, tree, bush, air, water, fire, everything has a spirit and that means that everything has life and should be honored and respected.

EV batteries might still have a lot of life left in them, but are replaced because they no longer provide the range required, or they are available because the original vehicle was wrecked, etc.

I'm trying to build a food forest based beverage business, lots of tart berries, mints ,sugarbeets, nutsedge, etc.
Raw saps could be a great draw at the farmers market.
