Shouldn’t a complete sustainability approach include more than just food, energy, and housing? What if sustainable living also included fulfilled living, education, sustainable economics and earth stewardship? One Community is creating open source and sustainable models for all of these areas and as what we call living and creating for The Highest Good of All:

This is the November 15th, 2015 edition (#138) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:
Here is the bullet-point list of this last week’s design and progress discussed in detail in the video above:
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @1:57
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:08
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:15
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @5:18
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @6:50
One Community is developing a complete sustainability approach 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 transferred the final 50% of the written content for the Energy Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Energy” is now 100% complete on our website.
We additionally completed and added the first 50% of the mindmap for the Energy Lesson Plan to the webpage. You can see that mindmap here:
Behind the scenes, we also wrote the second 1/3 of the Sustainability Lesson Plan, bringing the behind-the-scenes written part for that to about 65% complete.
One Community is developing a complete sustainability approach 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 completed an additional 10% on the streamlined version of our Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan page, bring that to approximately 30% complete. This week we added breakout pages for the detailed calculations by Naturopathic Doctor Matt Marturano (creator of the COHERENT model for comprehensive digestive health).
We also added three additional recipes from Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your BQ?) to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan – These recipes are: Pumpkin Fennel Breakfast Muffins, Stuffed Pasta Shells, and 7-Layer Slaw.
One Community is developing a complete sustainability approach 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 working on the behind-the-scenes revision for the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This week included another french drain drawing update incorporating the corbeling and floor changes, you can see this here, plus we did more geotextile and polyethylene dimension updates to the narrative. We’d say this brings us to 52% complete with this total rewrite and update.
Additionally, we sized and added door access to the kitchen loft for the crowdfunding campaign dome.
One Community is developing a complete sustainability approach 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 week the core team continued updating the Sketchup 3-D for the Duplicable City Center. This week we integrated a new shelving design and updated shelving curve that you can see here. We’d say we are now 72% done with the complete 3-D update:
Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer), continued developing and evolving the Pipe Furniture designs. What you see here are renders for the final structural design for the chairs for the Duplicable City Center library. Some minor dimension changes are still needed but the designs you see here are the final designs for these chairs that will be built from recycled pipe and be usable as both chairs and as a table, as demonstrated in the bottom right image:
Jarvis Zhao (Industrial Designer) also began designing the pipe shelving in 3-D for the library. Here are the initial 3-D images of this work in progress.
Behind the scenes Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant) and Lucas Tsutsui da Silva (4th-year Computer Engineering Student), continued work on the the Control Systems design. These are pictures of Mike describing layout changes with relation to power supply….
And these pictures are Mike using some of the hardware he’s working on now to explain the process he and Lucas will be going through to build the first control board:
One Community is developing a complete sustainability approach 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 began building another new page called Copyrights, Trademarks, Patents and Using them to Support Open Source and Free-sharing. We’re creating this new page with the help of Oz Czersk, a Lawyer Specializing in Trademark and Copyright Law, and it teaches why copyrights, trademarks, and patents are important to maintaining open source creations as open source. We’d say we are about 50% done with this new page.
