If a sustainable world is what we want, the time has come for living models capable of creating global stewards to achieve it. One Community is designing these as teacher/demonstration hubs that include and open-source share replication plans for all aspects. These include food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more. The global stewards will be the people who choose to live in these hubs and teach others how to replicate them 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 April 28th, 2019 edition (#318) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:

One Community is creating global stewards 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 began building the most sustainable faucets and accessories page. This included updating it to this new link, creating the header and social media images, the what and why sections, and version one of the faucets representing round one of our research. You can see some of this work here.
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued working on the Earthbag Village (Pod 1). Here is weekly update #156 from Dean. This week’s focus, as shown in these images, was more work on the windows, doors, and above-door designs.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 48th week leading the development of the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was creating another round of additions and updates to the electrical box installation details, wiring specifics, and creating the first version of the final wall assembly to cover all the electrical. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is creating global stewards 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 created all the test color combinations shown here for the sun graphic that we’ll be including on the City Center Library wall and Social Dome floor. The large one is what we chose.
The core team also created all the images here to clarify the new double sliding glass door entryways so we can update the AutoCAD file with the new designs.
Dipti Dhondarkar (Electrical Engineer) continued with her 113th week volunteering by finishing this new set of the library DIALux lighting tests for the new lighting designs. These images are now on the website also.
Tanya Griffin, Aubryanne Boyle, and Allie Marsh (Interior Designers from Lotus Design Pros) completed their 18th week helping with the Duplicable City Center interior design details. This week’s focus was researching alternative column options and additional furniture details for the Dining Dome, and rug options for the Social Dome. You can see some of these here on the development storyboards.
Sneha Dongre (Structural Engineer) also continued with her 11th week helping with the Duplicable City Center structural details. This week’s focus was working on assigning layers as SAP2000 objects in AutoCAD, adding joints and any missing elements that were not able to import, and cross checking them to see if all the elements are getting imported. You can see some of this work here.
Elizabeth Kahn (Environmental Consultant) completed her 15th week as a researcher with our team. This week she did deeper research to confirm the details for the sustainable hand dryer options and began formatting her work for the upcoming most sustainable hand dryer options page. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
One Community is creating global stewards 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. We continued revising our goat care details by continuing to break down and transcribe the steps of “Our Daily Goat Routine at Chick-a-Woof Ranch” video and added further content to our Goggle Doc. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
The core team also finalized our open source icon and symbol set for our permaculture designs. This set and the open source downloadable file can now be found in the resources section of the developing permaculture page.
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 creating global stewards 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 the core team working with Brian Gilb (Project Management Professional – PMP) continued with our 3rd week of updating our business plan and editing related content to simplify several of associated overview pages.
