USDA’s People’s Garden evolves: It’s now featuring GM crops.
I’m indebted to Jerry Hagstrom’s Hagstrom Report for this one.
The People’s Garden on the grounds of the Agriculture Department headquarters, intended by the Obama administration to highlight organic food, has been renamed and reconfigured.
It now features a “Voice of the Farmer” exhibit extolling the virtues of genetically modified alfalfa, corn and soybeans.
This is part of a “Trust in Food” initiative organized by Farm Journal magazine in partnership with its Foundation’s coalition of Big Ag companies.
It will be there until October 2020.
Will this encourage the public to have greater trust in food? I doubt it.
