WOW!  Birke Baehr is an 11 year old who wanted to be an NFL football player "awhile back", but
decided he wants to become an organic farmer instead--because he'll have more impact on the world.
He also wants us to know that some kids will actually like baked kale chips, and that more kids would eat vegetables and fruit if they knew more about how their food is grown.

It's an inspiring, funny and informative five minute NextGeneration TED talk---listen for yourself, here.
