Ecological Tipping Point for an Abundant Future – One Community Weekly Progress Update #166

Through sustainable and open source living models, it is possible to achieve an ecological tipping point for an abundant future for all people and life on our planet. As a species we can adopt Highest Good society and conscious stewardship practices to renew and regenerate our planet in ways that also provide a better quality of living for all who participate. One Community calls this living and creating for The Highest Good of All:

Shadi then finished this new image for the tree aspects of the Tropical Atrium Planting and Harvesting plan, adding more details to show the layering of these trees and how this has been done to maximize sunlight availability for all of them, all with an aim of reaching an ecological tipping point for an abundant future. Next step is for us to add the content and upload them to the site.

As part of the development of our our Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan, which features contributions from Naturopathic Doctor Matt Marturano (creator of the COHERENT model for comprehensive digestive health), this week the core team modified the calculations for quantities for our food bars and began adding the food bar plans to our website, focused on reaching an ecological point for an abundant future.

ECOLOGICAL TIPPING POINT FOR AN ABUNDANT FUTURE – HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING PROGRESS

Highest Good housing, cob construction, earthbag construction, straw bale construction, earthship construction, subterranean construction, sustainable homes, eco-homesOne Community is moving towards an ecological tipping point for an abundant future 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 crowdfunding campaign we are developing. This week we did another review of Section 10: Stem Wall and Dome Construction and added narratives along with 3 additional steps due to a change in the 6 & 12 mil Polyethylene extension from atop the 8th earthbag course to atop the 9th earthbag course. This will allow the 9th earthbag course to serve as a backsplash for the french drain gutter from rain off the dome. We’d say we are now 83% complete with this total update and rewrite behind the scenes.

Dean Scholz, Architectural Designer, further developed what’s necessary for us to create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 21 of this work that continued with what you see here, creating more high-quality render plants and trees like those we’ll be growing on the property. This effort aligns with our vision of creating an ecological tipping point for an abundant future

ECOLOGICAL TIPPING FOR AN ABUNDANT FUTURE – DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER PROGRESS

duplicable city center, open source city hub, laundry, dining, swimming pool, hot tub, kitchen, library, game roomOne Community is moving towards an ecological tipping point for an abundant future 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 began working on the first renders of the natural pool and spa area aspects of the Duplicable City Center. Here are three of the perspectives we are developing:

Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer), also continued exploring recycled pipe shelving options for the Duplicable City Center library, integrating the concept of an ecological tipping point for an abundant future. What you see here is round #7 of this work appropriately adjusting the shelves to only occupy the lower 7 feet of the 13′ walls in this room, and then exploring more designs along with ways to fill the space above the shelving.

WHAT ONE COMMUNITY IS CREATING

One Community is creating a place to grow together and change the world together. We are creating a space that helps each other live in integrity with each other and the planet as we strive to be the greatest versions of ourselves. We do this by harmoniously respecting each other, nature, and the rest of our one shared planet, an ecological tipping point for an abundant future.

Our goal is to demonstrate what we feel is the most sustainable, healthy, and fun environment we can create. A place based on compassion, kindness, and collaboration, embodying the ecological tipping point for an abundant future. This replicable community will serve as an example for what is possible.

Throughout our design process we are open sourcing and free-sharing everything needed for construction and replication. This includes what we call “Highest Good” approaches to foodenergyhousingeducationfor-profit and non-profit economics designsocial architecturefulfilled livingstewardship practices and more, all under the concept of ecological tipping point for an abundant future. We are creating these resources for implementation as individual components or complete developments called teacher/demonstration hubs. These hubs, integral to reaching the ecological tipping point for an abundant future, will help launch additional hubs as awareness and knowledge grow.

BUILDING THE FIRST OF MANY

One Community will be the first teacher/demonstration hub, a crucial step towards ecological tipping point for an abundant future. It will function as an experiential-learning model that facilitates mass participation to address humanity’s most pressing challenges through: A replicable model for expansion, building seven self-sufficient village/city prototypes, becoming the world leader in open-source sustainability solutions, and evolving and expanding ALL aspects of sustainable living, all while focusing on the ecological tipping point for an abundant future.
