What’s wrong with our food system: Birke Baehr on TED.com

Posted by: Matthew Trost

11-year-old 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. (Recorded at TEDxNextGenerationAsheville 2010, August 2010 in Asheville, NC. Duration: 5:15)
