Birke began his journey as a presenter at TEDx Next Generation Asheville 2010, Birke’s talk, “What’s wrong with our food” received the most views ever and wowed audiences worldwide.
Birke has been featured in various media venues, sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm about food. He enjoys getting his hands dirty on chemical free farms, growing his own vegetables, checking out local farmers markets and farms. I was very pleased to have this wonderful opportunity to interview a kid just like me. He is working hard in making a difference. Birke and I discussed his views, his work, and his ongoing events to free the world from harmful farming and food practices.
Birke is truly a person that I respect and I wish him lot of luck on educating people and to save the planet.
