This is unbelievable. The Obamas are planting an organic garden and some Big Ag folks are annoyed that the White House couple isn't showing appropriate appreciation for the value of conventional farming practices (i.e. use of chemicals).
This was attached to copies of a lengthy letter mailed to Michelle Obama and circulated on the Internet:
Did you hear the news? The White House is planning to have an organic garden on the grounds to provide fresh fruits and vegetables for the Obamas and their guests. While a garden is a great idea, the thought of it being organic made Janet Braun, CropLife Ambassador Coordinator and I [Bonnie McCarvel] shudder. As a result, we sent a letter encouraging them to consider using crop protection products and to recognize the importance of agriculture to the entire U.S. economy .
The Reluctant Eater summarizes the story and links to the full text of the letter.
