We can create abundance through green living, global abundance if we succeed in creating a self-replicating model. One Community is designing and open sourcing the food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic designs, social architecture, fulfilled living practices, global stewardship practices, and more to make this possible.

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 May 26th, 2019 edition (#322) 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 HOUSING: @7:01
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @8:12
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @10:22
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @11:15
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @12:41
One Community is demonstrating abundance through green living with 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 working with Brian Gilb (Project Management Professional – PMP) created the complete work breakdown structure for the Earthbag Village and began creating this same structure for the Duplicable City Center.
Dan Alleck (Designer and Illustrator) completed his 45th week helping with Earthbag Village renders. This week he finished work on the people, plant, and texture updates to this final view of the Earthbag Village looking South. This image is now on the Tropical Atrium open source hub too.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 52nd week leading the development of the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was cross checking and updating the parts details and more revisions to the storage and changing area, some of which you can see here.
One Community is demonstrating abundance through green living with 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 Anvita Kumari Pandey (Civil Engineer) added the Duplicable City Center sprinkler system pipe specifications and quantities, pipe prices, and images & source urls to the Duplicable City Center Costs spreadsheet.
Tanya Griffin, Aubryanne Boyle, and Allie Marsh (Interior Designers from Lotus Design Pros) completed their 22nd week helping with the Duplicable City Center interior design details. This week’s focus was paint, flooring, and more furniture and art plans for the cupola and additional art plans and dirt-catching floors for the Social Dome.
Yuqiao Zhang (Architectural Designer/Drafter) also joined the team and completed his first week helping finalize the City Center AutoCAD and SketchUp files. This week he added an additional window to the Social Dome and relocated all the other windows for that dome and the Dining Dome in both AutoCAD and SketchUp and revised and added details to AutoCAD section A and B. You can see some of this work here.
Ron Huang (Mechanical Engineer) continued with week 3 working on the Energy Modeling for our LEED Platinum certification and City Center open source HVAC design tutorial. This week he finished modeling all the windows and doors and the first energy use analysis tests.
Sneha Dongre (Structural Engineer) additionally continued with her 13th week helping with the Duplicable City Center structural details. This week’s focus was adding the new window and making individual lines in AutoCAD on top of non-working polylines so as to import them successfully into SAP. You can see some of this work here.
And Zeyu Zhu (Mechanical Engineer) also completed his 2nd week increasing the capacity and finalizing the rainwater catchment designs for the City Center. This week he estimated reservoir size needed for the 3 consecutive rainiest months and searched for suitable tanks for underground water storage.
One Community is demonstrating abundance through green living with 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 continued writing the behind-the-scenes narrative and detailed food rollout plan. We continued research for goats which included a review of the video Raising Kiko Goats at Lookout Point Ranch, adding more info from the Guild Brook Farm video, and incorporating all the new information into our behind-the-scenes Google Doc for this topic.
The core team also completed the rest of the free permaculture course being offered by Oregon State University, outlined the details we’ll be using to develop the Open Source Permaculture Design page, and started creating a complete mindmap of the permaculture process. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is demonstrating abundance through green living with 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:
This week the core team continued working on the structural redesign of the Ultimate Classroom. This week we finished updates to the exterior walls around the bathrooms, extended the length of the classroom-separating walls, placed two different types of folding movable walls, moved the bathroom windows, and created an initial roof design. You can see some of this work-in-progress here.
One Community is demonstrating abundance through green living with 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 week Emilio Nájera (Digital Marketer) also continued with his 30th week as part of the marketing team. This week’s focus was finishing the Open Source City Center Lighting Design research and working on the keyword research for the Human Needs landing page. You can see some of this work here.
