9 year old Birke on the importance of eating organic

“I wanted to be an NFL football player I decided I wanted to be an organic farmer instead.
That way I can have a greater impact on the world.” -Birke Baehr, age 11

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.
