Community organized eco-restoration is one path to regenerating and restoring our planet. Through holistically sustainable communities, ecological and sustainable approaches to food, energy, and housing can be combined with sustainable and more enriching fulfilled living, education, and economics models to improve people’s lives while also teaching them to sustainably rejuvenate the earth for The Highest Good of All. This is what One Community is doing:

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 December 13th, 2015 edition (#142) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:

One Community is forwarding community organized eco-restoration 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 first 50% of the written content for the Winter Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan is purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Winter.”
Behind the scenes, we wrote the final 1/3 of the Winter Lesson Plan, bringing the behind-the-scenes written part for that to 100% complete and ready for addition to the site.
We also completed the final third of the mindmap for the Fall Lesson Plan. That brings this mindmap to 100% complete, which you can see here:
One Community is forwarding community organized eco-restoration 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 updated calculations for our Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan behind the scenes. Naturopathic Doctor Matt Marturano (creator of the COHERENT model for comprehensive digestive health) made the updates to the calculations by taking into account the specific nutrient needs of our current pioneer team.
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: Chestnut & Avocado Bruschetta, “Meatball” Soup, and Zucchini Pizza with pine nut cheese:
One Community is forwarding community organized eco-restoration 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 put another 10 hours into the behind-the-scenes revision for the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This week’s focus was converting single bag details over to tubed bags, bailing twine tying updates due to exclusion of the buttress wall, and re-writing the foundation construction due to exclusion of the buttress wall.. You can see some of this work here and we’d say this brings us to 56% complete with this total rewrite and update.
We also added the written portion of the presentation the Intern Team created for the Tree House Village (Pod 7), as you can see here. This includes the considerations and rational for the service design, interior/exterior design, and structural design choices the interns made.
One Community is forwarding community organized eco-restoration 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 finished the 3-D natural pool and spa internal details for the Duplicable City Center 3-D specifics. You can see these additions here with plants, rocks, the design of the transition door, people and other aesthetic touches:
We also finished designing the upper loft social and recreation space for the Social Dome. You can see this addition of furniture and people here. We’d say we are now 85% done with the complete 3-D update.
Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer), continued finalizing the Pipe Furniture design renders for the Duplicable City Center library. The new renders you see here show an additional layout for the chair/table combination designs:
Michelle Wu and Jarvis Zhao, both Industrial Designers, also continued together working on the designs for the pipe shelving for the library. Here are some of Michelle’s explorations in to different furniture options:
And here are Jarvis’ designs for the shelving that incorporate a movable box option we all explored:
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. Here’s revision #6 for this:
And here is one of Mike’s other designs he was using for clarification and some drawing he was doing to explain it to Lucas and Jae on their weekly call.
One Community is forwarding community organized eco-restoration 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 updating the Highest Good Network page with what has been weeks of work with Andrew Herman (Software Engineer and Core Member of Futurist Playground). This page shares the details of the open source software we’re creating together for complete teacher/demonstration hub management, data gathering, open source collaboration and more. We’d say this page is about 50% complete:
We also continued working with Ivan Manzurov (Artist and Illustrator) to create new icons for all of our pages. Here are the icons Ivan created for the Highest Good education component:
In addition to this, Lisa Ramos (Graphic Designer) completed all these logo variations for us….
…which led to this new and updated design for our logo!
Here is the old version of our logo for easy comparison. This will be updated across our pages in the near future.
