Getting phosphorous out of garden centers probably is a good idea, since P is rarely the limiting nutrient in a home garden. Just don't explain to the organic folks why they use bone meal.
Getting the phosphorous out of dishwasher detergent, on the other hand, is a foolish, meaningless gesture that has negligible benefits.
The whole home garden area is widely overlooked. In California, over 50% of the pesticides applied are not from farmers. Foresters, golf courses, and parks are subject to the same strict regulations that farmers are; home gardeners can do anything they want.
