One Community is evolving sustainability with adaptable solutions for society that address both physical sustainability and emotional sustainability. We are doing this with open source and free-shared tools, tutorials, and resources for all aspects of living. Our guiding philosophy is creating for The Highest Good of All:

One Community is regenerative world building 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 the final 75% of the Harmony Lesson Plan mindmap. We now move onto web design for this one, which will produce a lesson plan page like all our others that teach all subjects to all learning levels in the context of this central theme like “Harmony”:
We also finished our interviews, analysis, and adding of Imagine Wisdom Education to the website. This completes two weeks of interviews of Satyanna Luken (Author, Montessori Teacher, and founder of Imagine Wisdom Education (I-WE)) who has also been helping us with development of the open source Ultimate Classroom Component:
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD PROGRESS
One Community is adaptable solutions for society 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 finished adding the diversity details to the Sweet Potato section of the large-scale gardening page. We added the 9 you see featured here, plus 12 more, for a total of 21 along with cultural considerations, planting guidelines, and purchasing details:
One Community is adaptable solutions for society 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 completed the first 15% of the earthbag construction footers, foundation, and flooring tutorial page you see here. We’ll be adding extensive tutorial videos and other details as part of the crowdfunding campaign:
We also created a new layout for the crowdfunding campaign wet dome that fits into a 150 square foot footprint. The purpose of a dome this small is so that it can be built in many counties without a permit. We will also be providing a permitted version of the 150 square foot footprint dome as part of our crowdfunding campaign goals.
Also behind the scenes, but seen here, we completed about 40% of the total energy infrastructure rollout details for off-grid community creation starting with 50 and progressing to 400+ people. These details are developing now in GoogleDocs and will be transferred and reformatted on the website as soon as they are complete.
Scott Howard of Earthen Hand Natural Building has also now added a large body of natural plaster creation input to our open source plaster page:
One Community is adaptable solutions for society 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 an additional 30 seconds of the Duplicable City Center 3-D video. Here it is to the point it is complete, showing over 2 years of design work for this building happening in 3-D with additional still images after the video:
Behind the scenes, we completed about 60% of the control systems research for all structures at One Community. What you see here is a screenshot from our working GoogleDoc in progress. This is the research into all the software and hardware options available for monitoring, management, and automation of everything from energy and water to internet usage.
Also, Ben Pollock (Full Service Restaurant and Kitchen Designer/Senior Project Manager with Webb Food Service Design) helped coordinate our complete Dining Dome hood design and emergency sprinkler system details:
Joel Newman (Architectural Visualization Designer) also began working on the lighting specifics for the Dining Dome, sharing his process that you can see here. This is taken from our collaborative GoogleDoc work space and shows his work testing both the software for assessing lighting, as well as lighting placement:
One Community is adaptable solutions for society 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 completed the update of our One Community Pledge sharing our 14 core values and 42 questions to facilitate global transformation and create a world that works for everyone:
We also updated our Revenue Streams page discussing the overview of the open source One Community model for adaptable financial solutions for spreading Highest Good society:
And last but not least, we finished hours of collaboration and design of our new “Open Source Video Coming” image that you see here. This image will begin to be displayed on our website wherever we’ll be adding an open source tutorial video. Below it is just one image, but it will be used on the site as a split image where you can click the left to see how to help us and click the right for our crowdfunding campaign page.
