A new paradigm for eco-living is possible and needed. Global establishment is possible if we can make it easy enough, affordable enough, and desirable enough to spread on its own. One Community is facilitating this through open source tools, tutorials, and DIY resources covering food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more.

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 October 6th, 2019 edition (#341) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:
One Community is forwarding a new paradigm for eco-living 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 week the core team continued adding the final content to the most sustainable faucet options page. This week we finished all the details and content shown here for our #2 and 3 recommended providers, Toto and Kohler.
Brianna Olsen (Sustainability Researcher) also completed her 15th week as a member of the team. This week she finished researching the most current technology for the sustainable hand dryer options page. You can see this work below and next is writing the updated content.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) completed his 69th week developing the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was adding in render perspectives and texting different ways to show the various areas they reference.
Shadi also started outlining how we’ll create instructions for the electrical components shown here.
One Community is forwarding a new paradigm for eco-living 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 Ron Huang (Mechanical Engineer) continued with his 22nd week working on the Energy Modeling for our LEED Platinum certification and City Center open source HVAC design tutorial. This week’s focus was fine tuning of the HVAC control simulations to balance the schedules and controls to remove simultaneous heating and cooling and demonstrate acceptable levels according to code.
One Community is forwarding a new paradigm for eco-living 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 week the core team viewed additional sheep shearing videos and added the information to our behind-the-scenes sheep-tutorial Google Doc. We also organized the shelter needs and cold-weather management practices on the Doc, as shown here.
And the core team also continued developing the behind-the-scenes open source permaculture design content. This week we re-watched Geoff Lawton’s videos on Concepts and Themes in Design and Methods of Design and took the notes you see here, which we’ll be integrating into the tutorial.
One Community is forwarding a new paradigm for eco-living 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 component of One Community is about 95% complete with only the Open Source School Licensing and Ultimate Classroom construction and assembly details remaining to be finished. With over 8 years of work invested in the process, the sections below are all complete until we move onto the property and continue the development and open sourcing process with teachers and students – a development process that is built directly into the structure of the education program and everything else we’re creating too:
One Community is forwarding a new paradigm for eco-living 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:
