Eco-communities creating a global sustainability cooperative could revolutionize how people live by demonstrating a more enjoyable and more sustainable way that prioritizes cooperation and collaboration over competition. One Community is calling this The Highest Good of All and we’re creating open source and free-shared tools, tutorials, and DIY resources to demonstrate and replicate all aspects of the eco-community process.

One Community is facilitating eco-communities creating a global sustainability cooperative 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:
The core team continued Sketchup design for the open source outdoor areas of the Recycled Materials Village (Pod 6). This week we selected the area for the skatepark, researched skate-park images and ideas for Sketchup models (top right image), and created the initial skatepark layout and designs.
The core team also continued working on the Murphy bed instructions. This week we set the auto numbering on the sections, added 20 new pages to the wireframe, and refined the section starts for consistent numbering.
And the core team continued working on the Water Recycling Net Zero Bathroom Design page. This week’s focus was aligning the images relative to the text and spacing. We also worked on adding more alt text to the images to improve the SEO rankings. Finally, the team began working on the table of contents for the page by adding all of the main sections to it and created the first 3rd of the anchor links. We’d say we’re now about 50% complete with the page.
We also added the Labyrinth and Concert/Class Amphitheater description to the Compressed Earth Block Village page.
