missing 100 million jobs curriculum - the 20 most nutritious foods your community could be eating

I have a hypothesis that if every community taught its children this local curriculum truly we would create many more jobs and nutritious foods would be as cheap to buy as non-nutritious ones - at least on a seasonal basis. This challenge starts in the so-called developed world where obesity is rife, but it makes you wonder if we have developed the wrong lnowledge 

This hypothesis comes from observing these such as these :

many of the fruits and vegs I grew up in surrey England with as a child are now supplied with in "dirty" versions that have next to no nutritional value  a synonym for dirty maybe what some us supermarkets call conventional instead of organic

The Dirty Dozen list, however, is made up of fruit and veg that are often laden with pesticides and other chemicals. These are apples, capsicum, blueberries, celery, grapes, cucumber, lettuce, nectarines, peaches, potatoes, strawberries and spinach.

When you look at the logistics of distributing fruit and vegetable around usa supermarkets it seems that we are now told organic is more costly because supermarkets over time  (and all the big players in the food chain) havent liked to the bother with dealing with local farmers and seasons

So we've ended local food security and nutritious foods and got pesticides, global food chains that destroy sustainability of more and more local communities.

I wonder just how many ,more jobs would be enjoyed worldwide if we minimised pesticide use and maximised local food distribution. I would be happy to be told there is a balance but haven't we the peoples completely lost out on trying to market every local nutritious source first

In states around usa, Muhammad Yunus has challenged public universities to spend one day a year to listen to their students solutions for the future. The number 1 topic area stiudents choose to pitch on is Food security, organic produce, market gardens as a practice couree at school,....

Better Future Alliance

The Better Future Alliance (BFA) is an L3C created by several subject-matter experts in sustainable community design and economic development. By utilizing the tools that BFA has developed, needy communities can turn liabilities into assets, provide their existing citizenry with new, sustainable opportunities, retain and enhance their cultural sites, and realize their Better Future.

Foody is a social enterprise that bolsters local food markets by providing small-scale farmers with access to web-based sales, marketing tools, account services, and delivery logistics. The web-based business model of Foody will decrease transaction costs in local food markets which in turn creates greater sales for farmers and lower costs for consumers.
