One Community is focused on creating a better world for everyone through open source, free-shared and sustainable approaches to food, energy, housing, fulfilled living, education, economics, and earth stewardship. We call this living and creating for The Highest Good of All:

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 29th, 2015 edition (#140) 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 EDUCATION: @1:57
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:08
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:22
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @5:36
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @6:48
One Community is creating a better world for us all 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 final 50% of the written content for the Fall 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 “Fall.”
We additionally completed and added the first 25% of the mindmap for the Fall Lesson Plan and fall subject theme icons to the webpage. You can see the mindmap here:
Behind the scenes, we also wrote the second 1/3 of the Winter Lesson Plan, bringing the behind-the-scenes written part for that to about 65% complete.
One Community is creating a better world for us all 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 completed another 10% on the organization of the streamlined version of our Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan page, which includes contributions provided by Naturopathic Doctor Matt Marturano (creator of the COHERENT model for comprehensive digestive health). This week we added anchor links & images to sections of the page and began creating breakout pages for specific weeks of recipes. The page is now 50% complete behind the scenes.
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: Unstuffed Poblano, “Chicken” Chopped Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette, and Tomato Pumpkin Bisque:
One Community is creating a better world for us all 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 footer widths and forms specifics, edits of excavation and centerpoint re-establishment, and compass installation details. You can see some of this work here and we’d say this brings us to 54% complete with this total rewrite and update:
Last but not least, Dean Scholz, Architectural Designer, began working on Cob Village (Pod 3) render updates. This work included converting the Revit files from this summer’s Intern Team into 3DS Max files as you can see here:
One Community is creating a better world for us all 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 added 3-D people, some additional venting details, and shelving support for the Duplicable City Center kitchen (top row). We also redid the 2nd floor dining area to match the updated AutoCAD floorplan (bottom row). We’d say this brings us to 78% 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 the variety of different combinations of wood types, pipe types and fabrics we researched and determined would be quality options for these designs.
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 the most recent layout for this:
And here are pictures of Mike talking about different components, how they will connect and fit into the control panel, and ways to save space by using different ones:
One Community is creating a better world for us all 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 finished building the Copyrights, Trademarks, Patents and Using them to Support Open Source and Free-sharing page. This page shares the amazing work of Oz Czerski, a Lawyer Specializing in Trademark and Copyright Law. This week’s progress included final edits and formatting to bring this page to 100% complete. We also placed ads to try and find ourselves a volunteer Patent Attorney or Patent Agent to help create the open source and patenting tutorial page.
