Veggies are generally quite easy to clean. I keep a scrub brush specifically for veggies under the sink. A quick scrub under the tap and they're fine. The pathogens that cause food poisoning are typically only on the outside of the veggies. Leafy veggies are a bit harder to scrub, but I rub them down with my fingers under running water.

Organic is no protection against biological contamination. In fact organic farmers are more likely than chemical farmers to use manure, which is a potential source of pathogens. But washing is all it takes to clean them.
