An aquapini is a walipini incorporating aquaponics. These structures are built into the ground because below the frost line the earth maintains a temperature of 55 degrees F/13 C. Building these structures sunk deep enough into the ground benefits from this and helps keep these structures both cool in the summer and warmer in the winter. They have additional benefits in that they require less building materials than a greenhouse, look better and maintain a lower physical profile, and are easier to service and repair since the roof begins at about ground level.

Complete Aquapini and Walipini Infrastructure Layout Evolving in CAD: Click to Enlarge

We will be building 3 walipini greenhouses and three aquapinis - 1 purposed for large-scale food production and the other two purposed for maximum food diversity and beauty. The designs we have created are purposed to maximize growing space, grow an unparalleled diversity of food, and provide a beautiful recreational space as well. Using a combination of a sloped South-terraced growing area, completely glazed South wall, and skylights supports this while maximizing needed sunlight in the winter and reducing excess sunlight (and heat) in the summer:

Some of the key features and intentions of the aquapini and walipini (Phase II) food infrastructure include:

  • 6 structures
  • Artistic designs
  • Multi-functional
  • ADA accessibility
  • Support our own bee colony
  • Central amphitheater space
  • Water collection off of all structures
  • 1 large-scale food production aquapini
  • 3 maximally affordable walipinis purposed for trees
  • 2 zen aquapinis purposed for diversity and aesthetic beauty
  • Grow enough food for all of One Community and our visitors
  • Provide system redundancy to guarantee sufficient food production
  • Large storage area for tools and equipment between the 2 Zen Aquapinis
  • Elimination of almost all retaining walls by replacing them with sloped areas
  • Sufficient distance between all structures to avoid shading of other structures
  • Easy foot travel (with small climb) from any point to any other point in or around the layout
  • Central pond for water storage, aesthetic benefit, edible water plants, and wading/swimming
  • Easy lateral expandability in support of our open source goals for adaptability to individual needs

Walipini Sunlight Study

Direct & Indirect Light

Here is a skylight study we did for these designs. It was to test the difference between flush skylights, horizontal skylights, 50% versus 100% solar penetration, and the addition of reflective surfaces versus non-reflective surfaces. The results show that flush skylights combined 100% solar penetration and the addition of reflective surfaces will maximize sunlight in these structures and increase this sunlight where we will need it most: against the North wall. The skylights in this video are placed 8′ from the North wall (shown) and (for easier viewing of the anelemma) the wall is only 5′ high, placing the ground at grade versus 6.5′ below grade as it will be in the walipinis and aquapinis.

When we begin construction, our team is projected to be able to complete the large-scale production aquapini and walipini 3 (largest walipini) within 3-4 months with an average weekly team commitment of 200 hours per week to this task. Additionally, we can build the roof and walls of these structures and then focus our attention developing the insides during the winter months (if needed) when focusing primarily on the construction of the earthbag village or straw bale village would be limited.

WHY BUILD AQUAPINIS AND WALIPINIS?

We chose aquapinis and walipinis for our Phase II food production infrastructure because they are affordable to construct, easier than other models to control the internal temperature, can produce large volumes of year-round food, and because we feel they provide the maximum benefit to financial and labor investment ratio. This makes aquapini and walipini designs the best choice in support of our four-phase global transformation strategy and open source project-launch blueprinting goals. The complete layout of these structures (see enlargeable map above) is also ideal for water catchment and conservation, creates a central recreational space, and provides extremely efficient harvesting and food removal.

Our goal is to demonstrate maximum food production combined with unique biodiversity as part of our botanical garden model. This house will maintain an internal temperature range of 60-90 degrees Fahrenheit (16-32 C) and a humidity of 50-80% producing many foods that cannot be purchased in most grocery stores. It has been designed to maximize the efficient utilization of every possible cubic foot of space, lumen of light, and BTU of heat. Such factors as work flow and ergonomics, light and shade requirements, pollination needs, etc. were carefully considered with the intent to incorporate these elements into a synergistic and harmonious whole. There is also a small recreational space built into the design.

We will build Walipini 3 (the larges Walipini) first, then #2, then #1. The purpose of the walipini greenhouses will be to provide research and development comparisons with the aquapinis while open source project-launch blueprinting this maximally affordable, duplicable, and easy to maintain year-round food production option that also houses trees.

WALIPINI #1

Walipini #1 will be a Frost-free Arid Zone Desert House providing over 1,800 square feet (167 sq meters) of growing space.The temperature range will be maintained between 60-100 F (16-38 C) with humidity ranging between 50-90%. The plantings in Walipini #1 will be in support of our botanical garden model and based on species from the world’s tropical deserts including (and centered around) specimens of the endangered species Cordeauxia edulis, the yeheb nut. Walipini #1 will be completed after Walipini #2.

Walipini #3 will be the Tropical House providing over 2,900 square feet (269 sq meters) of growing space. This structure is the the same size and similar internal environment (60-90 degrees F/16-32 C & 60-90% humidity) as the large-scale production aquapini. Not incorporating any aquaculture, Walipini 3 is purposed to demonstrate a year-round affordable walipini in-ground-growing food production system incorporating a diversity of trees and other tropical plants. Walipini #3 will be completed after the Large-scale Aquapini.

ZEN AQUAPINIS (ZENAPINI 1 & 2)

Each of these houses will provide over 1,400 square feet (130 sq meters) of growing space and are designed to demonstrate maximum food diversity and beautiful places to relax. They will be the last of the Phase II food structures to be completed. Our goal with both of these structures is to:

  • Produce a maximum diversity of food and plant life and beauty
  • Function as educational structures as part of our botanical garden model
  • Inspire people with designs they can and will want to build in their backyard

Just one of these smaller aquapini structures is purposed to produce a volume and diversity of food sufficient for a large family, their friends, and several additional families while also creating an aesthetically pleasing place to go and sit “in nature” even when it’s cold and uncomfortable outside. We are also building these with the long-term intent to demonstrate that we can convert them into walipini permaculture environments once the higher production levels of the aquaponics are no longer needed due to permaculture and the other sustainable food production facilities incorporated into each of the 7 different village models.

ZENAPINI #1

Zenapini #1 will be an education food production Cloud Forest House. The cloud forest environment is characterized by an ecosystem of high humidity (50-80%) and cooler temperatures than tropical regions (55-80 degrees F/13-27 C) and is generally frost free. As an educational structure and part of our botanical garden model, this house will feature unusual food plants, medicinal plants, species with unusual life cycles, reproduction biology, industrial uses, or other economic applications.

Zenapini #2 will be planted as a Tropical Moist House hosting a highly diverse range of tropical plants. It will be maintained between 60-90 degrees F/16-32 C and with 50-90% humidity. Food diversity is being prioritized over food production for this house and it will also host a variety of non-edible rare and useful plants. This structure will be an important component of One Community’s educational infrastructure where people can gain direct experience with some of nature’s plant wonders.

SUMMARY

One Community’s Phase II food infrastructure consists of 6 different aquapini and walipini structures that we are open source project-launch blueprinting. There are three primary designs: Large-scale Production AquapiniAesthetic and Diversity Focused Zen Aquapini, and the Maximally-affordable Walipini Greenhouse Design. Each of the 6 structures will provide a different internal environment and grow a different variety of food. The structures will be the Large-scale Production Tropical AquapiniZen Aquapini #1: Cloud Forest HouseZen Aquapini #2: Tropical Moist HouseWalipini #1: Frost-free Arid Zone Desert HouseWalipini #2: Borderline Subtropical House, and the Walipini #3: Tropical House. These 6 structures will be a part of our botanical garden model and will produce a diversity of delicious and nutritious food far beyond anything found in a typical grocery store.

FREQUENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS

Q: Will you be getting permits for these structures?

Yes, all of our food structures will be permitted and we will be open source sharing the permitting process also.

Q: How much will these structures cost to build?

Q: How much food will these structures produce?

Q: What is One Community’s stance on pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides?

If it is not safe to eat, we will not be spraying it on our food.

Q: Is One Community going to be a vegetarian community?

The One Community team consists of vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores. In accordance with our philosophy for The Highest Good of All we are maintaining a non-idealogical approach to food choices. That said, also in accordance with this philosophy, we will only support and consume food items that are ethically and sustainably raised, managed, and produced. The consensus process will be used to decide the evolution of the One Community food plan.

Q: How do you intend to produce spices, mill grain for flour, produce cooking oil, etc. etc.

To us, “100% food sustainability” means we will demonstrate and open source share a model that doesn’tneed external food sources. Having achieved this, what we produce internally versus choosing to buy will be decided through the consensus process.

You create a new model and make the old one obsolete. That, in essence, is the higher service to which we are all being called."
