While traveling with his family and being "road schooled", Birke Baehr saw the destructive impact that the industrialized food system has on the environment and human health. He became interested in organic farming, started to volunteer at the Humane Society and to work with animals.
He also started to educate other people and especially his peers about the importance of knowing "how our food is made, where it comes from, and what's in it".
The industrialized food system, seen through Birke Baehr's eyes, means nothing more than misleading advertisement, genetic engineered seeds and organisms, chemic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.
A possible solution? – “Choose local, choose organic, know your food. We can either pay the farmer, or we can pay the hospital”.
