TEDx – Birke Baehr: What’s wrong with our food system

11-year-old Birke Baehr reveals about the dark reality of our food system from GM crops to big-box agriculture at  TEDxNextGenerationAsheville in 2010. He calls for adults and children alike to support local, organic food production. He is an inspiration to all.


“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. Baehr volunteers at the Humane Society and loves working with animals.” (TED)
