Daily Connection: (This Kid is Awesome) Michael Pollan and the Next Michael Pollan

As the new IDP blog is still in its infancy phase, and as some days we have a quote and others we have images or videos, I thought it best to rename this post the Daily connection. Let's talk about food politics shall we? Michael Pollan is the maestro of this topic these days. Well now, he's got a mini-me. Check out the awesome video from 11 year-old Birke Baehr at a TEDx conference for young people below. Is there any issue that greater illustrates interdependence than food?


Daily Quote:

"The single greatest lesson the garden teaches is that our relationship to the planet need not be zero-sum, and that as long as the sun still shines and people still can plan and plant, think and do, we can, if we bother to try, find ways to provide for ourselves without diminishing the world. "
