It’s time for conscious global community creation. We can create a sustainable planet through conscious and conscientious communities working together. One Community is designing a prototype community to demonstrate what is possible while open source sharing everything needed for replication. Our open source sustainability plans include 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 November 11, 2018 edition (#294) 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: @7:36
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @9:30
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @10:51
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @11:28
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @12:33
One Community is supporting conscious global community creation 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 design updates to the open source Murphy bed furniture assembly instructions. The focus this week was designing the mounting brackets for the gas spring and setting the dimensions for the placement of these brackets. You can see some of this work-in-progress here.
Hemanth Kotaru (Structural Engineer) completed his 25th week helping with the structural engineering research and calculations for the Earthbag Village (Pod 1). This week’s focus was completing the first two test models for forces acting on the nails that will be used between the different bag courses.
Anvita Kumari Pandey (Civil Engineer) also completed her 23rd week volunteering. Resuming her work on the Earthbag Village Materials and Costs, this week she started working on the 3-dome cluster cost analysis and helped make updates to the Earthbag Village Master Sheet and autoCAD files. You can see some of this work here.
Guy Grossfeld (Graphic Designer) also rejoined the team and started helping with render corrections and PhotoShop additions for the Earthbag Village (Pod 1). This week Guy completed his part helping with the three renders shown here.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 29th week leading the development of the Murphy bed instructions. This week he created a detailed list of the wall section parts and scouted potential build issues throughout the existing materials list and assembly instructions. You can see some of this work here.
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) also continued working on the Earthbag Village (Pod 1). Here is weekly update #137 from Dean, his focus this week was continued development of the section views and 6-dome layouts. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is supporting conscious global community creation 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 continued working on the Sketchup Duplicable City Center updates for the Living Dome. We reshaped the first floor windows, made openings in the dome wall for the windows, and updated the window box. You can see some of this work here.
The core team also continued developing the Duplicable City Center Sprinkler and Emergency Systems Design page. This week we finished the Conditions section content and graphics. Some of which you can see here.
And the core team started developing the Duplicable City Center Materials and Costs. This week we created the initial formatting, wrote the What and Why sections, and added the overview cost analysis graphic. You can see some of this work here.
Dipti Dhondarkar (Electrical Engineer) also continued developing the lighting specifics for the City Center. This is Dipti’s 103rd week volunteering on this task and the focus this week was creating new AutoCAD graphics for each type of light fixture, a legend explaining them all, and adding a missing zone to the master file. You can see examples of all of this here.
One Community is supporting conscious global community creation 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 continued writing the behind-the-scenes narrative and detailed food rollout plan for the various stages of development. This week we completed (for now) working on rabbits. We also revisited researching commercial chicken coops and created a list of chicken nesting box and deep litter/bedding features.
One Community is building the foundations for how humanity creates a sustainable world 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. We’ll report on the final two elements to be finished as we develop them.
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 supporting conscious global community creation 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 week Emilio Nájera (Digital Marketer) continued with his 5th week helping the marketing team. This week he researched keywords for “Surveyor,” our top-level One Community brand pages, and refined and added additional words to the previously researched areas of: Structural Engineer, Civil Engineering, Plumbing, Food Specialist and Electrical Engineer, Product Designer, Attorney, Graphic Designer, and Project Manager.
In addition to this, the core team working with the Highest Good Network software team consisting of Shubhra Mittal (Software Delivery Manager) and Aishwarya Singh (Computer Science Engineer) continued developing the software. This week we added 4 new members to the design team, completed Ember UI and HGN REST code for handling delete, inactivate and archive user functionalities, created unit test cases for the LoginPage, and implemented Navigation Bar routing to timelog, dashboard, and reports in React. You can see some of this work here.
