Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
On September 6th, Colle, an online farmers market community, supports an article published on knoxnews.com regarding the efforts of a young organic food advocate who has recently published his first children’s book, Birke on the Farm which encourages organic foods and farming.
According to the article, thirteen year old Birke Baehr of Knoxville, TN produced the children’s book to raise awareness about the advantages of organic eating. The article states that Baehr aspires to be an organic farmer, believing his actions will impact the planet, and Baehr is hopeful that his children’s book will encourage young people to reconsider their food choices. According to the article, Baehr stated, “I just want to open their minds to a whole other realm of the industrialized food system and help them see how their food is processed and made.”
The article explains that Baehr hopes to inspire others to become activists and stand up for a cause. The online directory and virtual marketplace Colle commends the efforts of Baehr and his inspiring activism. Like Baehr’s efforts, Colle was created in order to promote organic and natural eating. The virtual database connects consumers and organic farmers, which ultimately promotes healthy consumption, encourages an organic lifestyle, and, by shopping locally, produces less carbon emissions. Colle is proud that people like Baehr serve the organic community.
Knoxnews.com states that Baehr’s family has completely transformed their eating habits as a result of Birke’s activism. According to the article, Birke’s mother Tricia explains that her son’s advocacy changed how she looked at food. According to Tricia Birke, “He feels that companies should be held accountable for marketing “healthy” foods to kids that are actually bad for them.”
