 Many of us have seen this amazing young man’s TEDx talk about What’s Wrong with our Food System which went viral on the internet and Facebook. At only 11 years of age, Birke Baehr gave his draw-dropping speech and since that time, has never looked back. Birke, now 14 years old, shared his passion for educating the world about the importance of sustainable farming and understanding what is in our food. He shared that someday he hopes to be the next  Joel Salatin, who is Birke’s biggest mentor. His first book, Birke on the Farm, is a children’s book to help educate children as young as first grade about the importance of sustainable farming and knowing their food. He shared how meeting people like, Dr. Vandana Shiva, has added to his learning about GMOs and sustainability. Birke Baehr’s message is one that both children and adults can learn from. He clearly talks the talk and walks the walk! To hear this inspirational interview, click on the link below:
