Lefevre's involvement with the Environmental Media Association placed her in the midst of a scandal. In 2010, she attended EMA's event "Gettin' Your Garden On" at Venice Senior High School's organic garden, sponsored by Yes to Carrots and Kellogg Garden Products.[4] While Kellogg Garden Products sells some organic soil amendments, the majority of its business is selling sewage sludge-based composts, which are illegal to use in organic farms and gardens. In the picture at left, you can see a bag of Kellogg's Amend behind Lefevre. For more on this controversy, see the article on the Environmental Media Association.
