Creating a truly sustainable planet would be equivalent to creating a Golden Age for humanity. Imagine a world where sustainable food, energy, and housing are combined with sustainable and more enriching fulfilled living, education, and economics models to meet the needs of all people, everywhere. We call working towards 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.

One Community is creating a Golden Age for humanity 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 Sustainability 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 “Sustainability.”
We also completed an additional third of the mindmap for the Fall Lesson Plan and added it to the webpage. That brings this mindmap to 60% complete, which you can see here:
Behind the scenes, we wrote the final 1/3 of the Sustainability Lesson Plan, bringing the behind-the-scenes written part for that to 100% complete.
One Community is creating a Golden Age for humanity 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 worked on organizing recipes on breakout pages for specific weeks. The food transition page organization is now 60% 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: Apple Oat Bread with Cinnamon Glaze, Jackfruit Chili, and Spaghetti Squash with Garlic, Tomato & Basil.
One Community is creating a Golden Age for humanity 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 another thorough and significant revision of the compass installation and use details. You can see some of this work here and we’d say this brings us to 55% complete with this total rewrite and update.
Shilcy Augustine (Architect) also continued developing the Compressed Earth Block Village (Pod 4) classroom and other shared community spaces, which you can see here:
And Dean Scholz, Architectural Designer, further developed what’s necessary for us to create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 2.0 of this work that focused mostly on finding and creating missing textures:
One Community is creating a Golden Age for humanity 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 natural pool and spa details as our continued development of the Duplicable City Center 3-D specifics. This included the furniture, aesthetic stone details, and people you see here. We also added additional flooring planning and specifics. With these additions we’d say we are now 80% 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 how the chairs convert to tables, how the designs can be used for storage, labels for the different kinds of wood, and a host of other design-clarification specifics.
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 is one of Mike’s clarification drawings:
And here are a bunch of pictures of us discussing different chips and components, the way the circuits are created, and exploring how to continue to minimize the space everything requires on the board:
One Community is creating a Golden Age for humanity 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 working with Ivan Manzurov (Artist and Illustrator) to create new icons for all of our pages:
Ivan also created these logo alternatives for us:
In addition to this, Lisa Ramos (Graphic Designer) produced these alternative font options for our logo that will soon be updated with the new tree and earth you see here in these examples:
