You want to know what’s wrong in our world? Birke Baehr tells us where food comes from and what industry has been doing for the past few decades to manipulate our food.
11-year-old Birke Baehr presents his take on a major source of our food — far-away and less-than-picturesque industrial farms.
Keeping farms out of sight promotes a rosy, unreal picture of big-box agriculture, he argues, as he outlines the case to green and localize food production.
Biography At age 9, while traveling with his family and being “roadschooled,” Birke Baehr began studying sustainable and organic farming practices such as composting, vermiculture, canning and food preservation. Soon he discovered his other passion: educating others — especially his peers — about the destructiveness of the industrialized food system, and the alternatives. He spoke at TEDxNextGenerationAsheville in 2010.
Baehr volunteers at the Humane Society and loves working with animals.
What will you teach your children? Will they speak out against genetically manipulated foods?
