Creating a goal-oriented ecological renaissance consists of clear objectives and making ecological progress easy enough, affordable enough, and attractive enough to spread on its own. Open source and free-shared resources covering all aspects of sustainable living, created for The Highest Good of All, are One Community’s path to facilitating this:

Creating a Goal-Oriented Ecological RenaissanceOne 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 March 15th, 2015 edition (#106) 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 @2:02
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:40
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @5:04
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @6:51
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @8:03
One Community is creating a goal-oriented ecological renaissance 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 created the initial setup of the Technology and Innovation Molecule webpage, which you can see here. This is the beginning formatting for this subject page that will cover the greatest minds, inventions, and creations of all time plus learning strategies, test-taking strategies, technology implementation, systems theory and analysis, and more.
Behind the scenes we also finished the rest of the written design for the lesson plan we’re working on with the central theme of “Civilization.”
Paige Allison Donatelli (Graphic Designer and Owner Operator of Namaste Living in a Material World) additionally finished another 30% of the image creation for the Civilization lesson plan. This brings us to 50% complete there. When complete on the site, this lesson plan will teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment using the central Civilization theme:
One Community is creating a goal-oriented ecological renaissance 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:
And we did this for our food forest canopy plantings hub too:
We also researched and added the final major component to the open source cole crops hub: RECIPES! You can see these new additions here:
Speaking of food experts, Benjamin Sessions finished all the recipes and images for the first half of Week 4 of the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan. You can see these four new recipes here along with the one he completed last week. In support of diversity, all these recipes are omnivore recipes that can easily be made vegan too. The purpose of all of these: supply remote village creation menu details sufficient to meet needs until food self-sufficiency is achieved.
One Community is creating a goal-oriented ecological renaissance 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 laying out the specifics for the Open Source Murphy bed furniture assembly details behind the scenes. These are part of the Earthbag Village and the crowdfunding campaign plan and new updates included cutting lumber and labeling pieces for two nightstands and assembling the nightstand frames. What you see here is all this behind-the-scenes work-in-progress. We estimate we are now 55% complete with what is needed for the website.
Also, behind the scenes, we finished the first 10% of the earthdome loft construction tutorial specifics.
In addition to this, Scott Thomas and his Shadow Ridge Signature Architecture Program team also finished the final CAD input details of the Earthbag Village shared-accommodation 3-dome cluster designs:
And the ADA version of this 3-dome cluster:
And the final window placement edits needed for the 6-dome clusters:
He also redesigned the central area so that it is built with straw bale walls like the rest of the village:
He’s also been working on the plumbing specifics:
One Community is creating a goal-oriented ecological renaissance 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 another 50% of the thermostatic shower valve and heat lamp energy and water savings open source page. This brings us to 60% complete and shares the work of Ron Payne (Mechanical Engineer and HVAC / Thermal Designer). When finished it will be a complete and open source resource for our research and rationale for using this hardware for saving money and increasing safety in both the Duplicable City Center and the Earthbag Village.
One Community is creating a goal-oriented ecological renaissance 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 3 months of collaboration and structuring of what home ownership will look like at One Community. This includes the details of how residents on vacation will be able to earn rental revenue, what a “Home Share” will represent for those joining after we own the property, how “Home Shares” will be able to be used for earning revenue and more. Visit the Becoming a Community Member page for complete details.
Jin Hua (Internet Marketing Expert and Web Developer) also finished the video that goes with the overview you see below. What he’s created is an amazing tutorial for translating any page of our site into another language. The video is done and edited and we’ll be making a complete translation page to teach people how they can do this amazing work.
