Summary. Below is a TED video of an 11-year-old speaking about problems with our current food system. The problem, as Birke Baehr points out, is in our factory-like production system that focuses too much on high production profits and not enough on food quality or animal compassion.

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. [source]

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. [source]
