100 years of healing and regeneration starts somewhere. We believe the most successful strategy will include specific and Highest Good of All approaches to food, energy, housing, education, economics, fulfilled living, and earth stewardship components. With this in mind, we are creating open source tools, tutorials, resources, and blueprints covering all of these areas.

One Community’s physical location will forward this movement as the first of many self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world. This is the January 30th, 2015 edition (#100) of our weekly progress update detailing the previous week’s development and accomplishments:

One Community is building the foundation for 100 years of healing and regeneration through Highest Good education that is for all ages, applicable in any environment, adaptable to individual needs, far exceeds traditional education standards, and more fun for both the teachers and the students:
This last week the core team finished all the image research and remaining 50% of the “Human Body” lesson plan mindmap you see here:
Behind the scenes we also completed another 40% of the “Human Body” lesson plan design itself – bringing us to 90% complete there.
Behind the scenes we also finished brainstorming and design of the green and yellow sections of the upcoming Technology and Innovation Molecule – this brings us to 60% complete there.
One Community is building the foundation for 100 years of healing and regeneration through Highest Good food that is more diverse, more nutritious, locally grown and sustainable, and part of our open source botanical garden model to support and share bio-diversity:
This last week the core team researched and added two resources sections to the open source eggplant hub, the open source alliums hub, and the open source cucumbers hub.
One Community is building the foundation for 100 years of healing and regeneration through Highest Good housing that is artistic and beautiful, more affordable, more space efficient, lasts longer, DIY buildable, and constructed with healthy and sustainable materials:
This last week the core team continued laying out the specifics for the Open Source Murphy bed furniture assembly details. You can see the most recent behind-the-scenes image of this work in progress here. We estimate we are now 20% complete with what is needed for the website.
Also behind the scenes we finished another 15% of the earthdome window and door framing reformatting details needed before moving these specifics to the website. This brings us to 25% complete with this work. Both the Murphy bed furniture and earthdome window and door framing details are part of the upcoming crowdfunding campaign.
Also for that campaign, we completed website addition of the total video outline specifics for the Earthbag and Aircrete Dome Finishing, Water Proofing, and Interior Finish section of the site.
In addition to this, Samuel Soroaster (Permaculturalist and sustainable designer from Green New World), created these design evolutions for updating 2 of the 4 toilet domes in the Earthbag Village. These updated designs incorporate increased water collection, reuse of greywater to flush the toilets, and provide an alternative to the vermiculture design we’ll use for the other two bathrooms.
One Community is building the foundation for 100 years of healing and regeneration through a Duplicable and Sustainable City Center that is LEED Platinum certified/Sustainable, can feed 200 people at a time, provide laundry for over 300 people, is beautiful, spacious, and saves resources, money, and space:
This last week the core team completed 50% of the thermostatic shower valve and heat lamp energy and water savings calculations. Here is a picture of this work developing behind the scenes. What you see here will be used for both the Duplicable City Center and the Earthbag Village.
One Community is building the foundation for 100 years of healing and regeneration through a Highest Good society approach to living that is founded on fulfilled living, the study of meeting human needs, Community, and making a difference in the world:
This last week the core team created new social media imagery and updated and featured our Teaching Strategies page that is an open source education resource of strategies drawn from Montessori, Waldorf, Orff, Reggio, Multi-Intelligences, and more. We also did this for our Freedom as a core value page sharing how we use this value in our decision making process and strategy for global change. And we did this for our New Life in a New World page that presents a succinct overview of our global transformation approach.
We also created version 1.0 of the page we’ll be using to promote Tsū and our reasons for supporting this new social network.
And we created version 1.0 of the page promoting GoodShop and how people can use their usual shopping and internet search habits to raise money for our non-profit (and others) at no cost to them.
Behind the scenes, Irfan Saeed helped us with research into the specifics of the legal landscape for open sourcing sustainable building methods.
