U.S. Department of Agriculture starts "People's Garden" and guess what?Posted Wednesday, April 8, 2009, at 5:37 PM
This may be more newsworthy than the White House Garden. Right in front of the USDA's headquarters in Washington they are creating a "people's garden" and it is going to be organic!
"USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack has taken a personal interest in developing the new People's Garden" and "the Secretary wanted the garden to be certified organic, so all the inputs--including compost--need to conform to the National Organic Program standards." http://www.prweb.com:80/releases/2009/04...
Wow! I wonder if the chemical ag people are going to fuss at Secretary Vilsack. Probably so, but maybe not in writing.
Just found it interesting and could not stop myself from posting it.
