Leave it to a "Roadschooled" Eleven Year Old...

This young gentleman's TED bio says it 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. He spoke at TEDxNextGenerationAsheville in 2010." 

"11 year-old Birke Baehr is featured on TED.com for his talk about "What's Wrong With Our Food System? And How Can We Make A Difference?" His talk has already (on November 29th) been viewed over 283,000 times at YouTube and is now available to the larger TED sphere of influence. The world is ready to listen to what youth have to say. It's time to hear and integrate their wisdom."
