What if we could design an open source and free-shared model for creating our planet our way, the way we want it and know is possible? Sustainable, regenerative, cooperative, collaborative, and for the The Highest Good of all people and life on it. One Community is creating a self-replicating model for this that includes sustainable and open source approaches to food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more.

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 March 31st, 2019 edition (#314) 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 HOUSING: @7:05

HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @10:47
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @11:53
One Community is creating our planet our way 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 continued developing the best, safest, and most sustainable paints, primers, stains, and sealers page. This week we created the remaining images we need and added details for a DIY chalk-based primer, ECOS Paints varnish, and Real Milk Paint stain. All of which you can see here.
Dan Alleck (Designer and Illustrator) completed his 41st week helping with Earthbag Village render additions. This week he finished work on the Earthbag Village Master Render shown here by replacing the rest of the open doors we wanted with closed ones.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 44th week leading the development of the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was electrical wiring and mounting the electrical boxes. You can see some of this work-in-progress here.
And Elizabeth Kahn (Environmental Consultant) completed her 11th week as a researcher with our team. This week she performed the 2nd round of water saving faucet aerator research for the most sustainable faucet options page and began writing and formatting the final content. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is creating our planet our way 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 continued the process of 3D modeling the new Duplicable City Center interior design details for the library. This week we made more updates to the decorative tree-like book shelves and columns, updated the column locations and rearranged the furniture, replaced the stone wall shelves, and designed the table lamps that match the ones we’ll actually be purchasing.
Tanya Griffin, Aubryanne Boyle, and Allie Marsh (Interior Designers from Lotus Designs) completed their 14th week helping with the Duplicable City Center interior design details. This week’s focus was specific product research and cost analysis and continuing to develop the storyboards you see here.
James Herrigel (Student Researcher) also completed his 16th week researching sustainable materials. This week’s focus was continued research for the Most Sustainable Adhesives page, writing up selective adhesives components for each different adhesive type, and featuring two new companies.
Sneha Dongre (Structural Engineer) also continued with her 7th week helping with the Duplicable City Center structural details. This week’s focus was updating all the window layers, fixing final conflicts from last week’s dome replacement process, and updating the master file with all these changes.
One Community is creating our planet our way 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 researching and revising our goat care and fencing details, and found goat stalls we think will be our longterm option. We also finished note taking on the How We Got STARTED With Goats video and My Livestock MISTAKES – They Are Gone video. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
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 our planet our way 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 Shubhra Mittal (Software Delivery Manager) wrote the job descriptions and organized all the on-boarding details needed to bring on a new 6-person team to finish developing the Highest Good Network software. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
Emilio Nájera (Digital Marketer) also continued with his 25th week as part of the marketing team. This week’s focus was finishing the keyword research for the Most Sustainable Urinals page, updating the Open Source AutoCAD campaign (with the help and guidance of Jin Hua (Web and Graphic Designer)), and created the Highest Good Food, True Community, and Resource Based Economy campaigns. You can see some of this work here.
