We have the ability to build a new world that works for everyone. In our opinion, this requires a comprehensive readdressing of the foundations of how we live and what is possible. As a non-profit organization purposed to create global transformation through sustainable teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities, we are starting with housing, energy, food, education, social architecture, business, and a culture for The Highest Good of All. The new world we wish to help people build is comprehensively sustainable, open source, cooperative, collaborative, and populated with people having a more enriching and fulfilling living experience. This is our weekly progress update (#22) covering our accomplishments for the week of July 22nd, 2013.

We want to help build a new world with fresher, healthier, and more diverse food using an open source botanical garden model. This week we completed all three Walipini planting maps add them to the website along with the complete plant lists for each of these food production houses. Here are the links to jump directly to these details for each house:
Here is the Walipini #1 map that was just completed to finish the set of three:
The Tropical Atrium 3D rendering progressed significantly this last week thanks to friend of the project Devin Porter’s amazing work. This center of the earthbag village now has an additional patio area and north-entry access to the tops of the trees we will be growing in this structure. We’ll also be adding additional storage space under the patio.
This week our team also finished final editing of the first 40 plants (of 60 total) in this structure. We will be updating the Tropical Atrium Planting and Harvesting Page with this information over the next couple weeks.
We are designing open source blueprints to build a new world with DIY sustainable infrastructure. This week we finished the first 1/2 of the earthbag village materials cost analysis. Once it is complete we will be adding those details to the Earthbag Village Materials Costs Page. An example of the level of detail we are researching can be found on our Earthbag Village Tools and Equipment Analysis Page.
