A large enough team effort towards creating a better world for us all is guaranteed to succeed. One Community is building that team and creating open source tools, tutorials, and resources so anyone, anywhere, can participate in the way that they want to. We call this living and creating for The Highest Good of All and it is purposed to build the better-world-for-us-all team as fast as possible::

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 14th, 2014 edition (#89) of our weekly progress update detailing the previous week’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 @1:54
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:16
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:24
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @6:12
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @7:28
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 finished the second 25% of the lesson plan mindmap with the central theme of “Opposites.” You can see it below and visit the “Opposites” lesson plan webpage where the written part of the lesson plan is already done and ready for use by anyone, in any educational environment, working with any age or educational level, to teach any and all subjects within and using this central theme of “Opposites.”
Behind the scenes we also finished 70% of the lesson plan outline with the central theme of “Highest Good” and another 50% of the image research for the lesson plan with the central theme of “Recreation and Relaxation” – bringing us to 70% complete there. Also behind the scenes, we finished the first 30% of image research with the lesson plan with the central theme of “Creativity.”
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 finished three more complete breakout pages from the large-scale gardening page. These included the Turnips page, the Oca page, and the Mashua page. You can see all three pages below and you can click them to visit the individual pages for all the specifics including plant descriptions, planting guidelines, cultural considerations, and more. These new pages load faster and also give us the space we’ll need to add recipes, gardening tips, harvesting and canning tips, and videos. Contact us if you have any great resources related to any of these plant species.

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 continued calculations for heat retention in the central Tropical Atrium recreation space that will house the Earthbag Village water storage and recycle the village used shower-water heat. The images here are projected heat transfer calculations through the walls at different projected times of year and at different temperatures.
This image is us working with a new software we hope will allow us to calculate the total thermal mass and manipulate all the variables of the center of this structure.
Behind the scenes we are 80% done with a big update for the crowdfunding campaign open source dome home electrical page that includes necessary additions and changes in response to the open source dome home plumbing content. We’ve finished another 20% of this also – bringing us to 90% done there.
In addition to this, we continued organizing all the parts for both of the custom murphy bed furniture. Here you can see the additions of the top and bottom components of the main murphy bed wall, along with a couple closeup renders as we keep disassembling it virtually, organizing all the parts by size, and making necessary adjustments to non-standard-wood-size components.
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 last week the core team completed addition of the inputs section of the Control Systems page. You can see these new additions below, bringing us to about 50% completion for this page. This page will be a constantly developing resource for open source monitoring systems setup, maintenance, evolution, and data gathering and sharing starting with the Duplicable City Center and the Earthbag Village (Pod 1), and expanding as One Community expands.
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 added One Community to tsū! We are excited about this because we truly see this as a Highest Good step towards the future of social media. Tsū is a platform looking to replace Facebook by offering the same service while returning 90% of the ad revenue they generate to the users. If you follow us on our other social media platforms, you will see we’re promoting this new platform heavily as we see it as a huge improvement over existing platforms. We’re also excited about it because we’re signed up with tsū through Sustainable Human who is signed up through “Trust Me I’m an Eco-Designer,” so everything we do supports those great organizations and anyone who supports us is supporting them too.
