Highest Good Food Infrastructure

People producing their own high quality and diverse food is a path to increasing health, biodiversity, and individual and global food security. As part of One Community’s self-replicating and self-sufficient teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities model, we also see this as a solution to world hunger. This page is the open source portal to all the components necessary to create this. It contains the following sections related to the Highest Good Food Infrastructure:

WHAT IS HIGHEST GOOD FOOD

We consider Highest Good food to be maximally nutritious, maximally bio-diverse, fresh, duplicable, space and resource efficient, ecologically and individually healthy food that is far superior to anything found in a typical grocery store. We are approaching this so it caters to vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores. We are also integrating it with One Community’s open source and earth-regenerative botanical garden model for those interested in joining the global cooperative of people specifically studying, preserving, sharing, and evolving plant species for The Highest Good of All.

Here's how it works...In accordance with our botanical garden model and our for The Highest Good of All philosophy we will demonstrate what truly ethical and carefully planned land stewardship is capable of. The ultimate result of this will be sustainable production of unparalleled nutrition and diversity capable of providing enough volume and variety to feed all of One Community and our visitors. Even with traditional methods one person working full-time on food production can produce enough food to feed 30; with aquaponics that same person can produce enough food to feed 300. Our goal when arriving on the property is to immediately start large-scale gardening and building ultra-affordable, easy, and fast to construct hoop houses. We will build enough hoop houses and plant enough food to make ourselves about 70% food self-sufficient within 3-4 months. Combining this with raising goatschickens, and rabbits will provide sufficient food to feed 100+ people by the end of the first year. Until we are successfully producing enough food to sustain ourselves, we will be buying it from local producers and suppliers with the goal of supporting sustainable and ethical practices.

Phase II food production will include building the walipini and aquaponics food farms that will provide even more food diversity and volume. Once we start building these structures, the first two are estimated to take no more than 6 months to build and test and another 2 months or so to be producing food. All six structures should be able to be completed within a year.

We believe if we can make this easy enough, affordable enough, and attractive enough, it will provide a clear path to increasing health, biodiversity, and individual and global food security. It also has the potential to revolutionize the way people look at and interact with the food they eat. As part of our self-replicating and self-sufficient teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities model, this could also address world hunger.

FREQUENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS

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, cooking oil, etc. etc.

To us, “100% food sustainability” means we will demonstrate and open source share a model that doesn’t need external food sources. Having achieved this, what we produce internally versus choosing to buy will be decided through the consensus process.

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: Can people choose not to eat in the group dining hall?

Yes, the Duplicable City Center will provide group dining space and the kitchen, where people choose to eat is up to the individual.

Q: Would we be allowed to have a hot plate stove (single burner)/microwave/toaster oven in our private residence if we wished to cook apart from the rest of the community from time to time? 

Yes, people can supply their individual residences with these items if they want to.

Q: Do you plan to raise cows or other large grazing animals for milk or food.

Probably not due to the sustainability issues with this approach to food. This could however change if agreed upon through the consensus process.

Q: What if I want something that isn’t on the community menu?

The community menu will be agreed upon through the consensus process. If a person wanted something not included on that menu, then they would be welcome to purchase and provide it for themselves.

Q: What if you are unable to meet your timelines for food self-sustainability?

We have funds built into our business plan to provide food for an additional year if necessary.

Q: I’m vegetarian/vegan, would I have to participate in any part of the process or raising animals for food and/or eating/cooking them?

No, you would not have to participate in any aspect of One Community’s food diversity that didn’t agree with your personal beliefs and preferences.

"In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model.

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."
