Organic Podcast 1

This is the first podcast segment from the Missouri Organic Association.

The MOA will begin bringing Educational Organic Podcasts each week.

Today’s show will give consumers an explanation of what is the correct definition of organic, the concerns about pesticide residues for children and the facts about the nutritional benefits of organic foods. MOA Spokesperson Melinda Hemmelgarn talks with Brownfield Farm Broadcaster Julie Harker on these topics.
