Ecologically addressing education is about sustainable, forward-thinking education to help people become conscientious global stewards. It is about teaching how to learn more than what to learn, solutioneering and thinking outside the box, and understanding how our individual decisions impact the larger whole. It is about living and creating for The Highest Good of all people and life on this planet and considering what is most important to learn and teach each other in support of this.

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 November 3rd, 2019 edition (#345) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:
One Community is ecologically addressing education 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 working with Oluyomi Sanyaolu (Technical Writer and Researcher) completed the behind-the-scenes formatting, research, and content needed to create the Earthbag Engineering Page. This was Yomi’s second week working on this task and he handled the research, formatting, and initial content creation while the core team focused on editing, feedback and formatting updates.
The core team also finished work on the business plan startup-costs and revenue projections for the 7 sustainable villages and the project as a whole. This included identifying and correcting a significant revenue error, developing the Miscellaneous Startup Expenses section, and several other sections.
And the core team worked on fixing outlet and switch details in the Murphy bed 3D SketchUp file. These corrections were needed for the assembly instructions and required researching if multiple circuits require their own electrical boxes. Two switches were then added on the outside entry door light on the left side inside, and another switch was added outside to the left of the entry door.
And Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 71st week developing the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was creating and adding a diversity of renders and additional color and numbering details to the main wall section shown here.
One Community is ecologically addressing education 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 Ron Huang (Mechanical Engineer) continued with his 26th week working on the Energy Modeling for our LEED Platinum certification and City Center open source HVAC design tutorial. This week’s focus was finishing the process of adding photovoltaics to the energy model and beginning work on the final energy model report for LEED.
Sneha Dongre (Structural Engineer) also continued with her 28th week helping with the Duplicable City Center structural details. This week she focused on learning/exploring RISA 3D software as our new choice for timber design for this structure.
Tianyu Zhou (Architect and Structural Engineering Consultant) also continued with her 4th week helping with the Duplicable City Center beam and column structural details. Her focus this week was learning/exploring/testing the RISA 3D software and beginning the process of creating construction documents for the structural framing plans. The structural plan indicates the location of steel girders, wood beams, and steel columns, the direction of the span, and the size of required structural members. Details will be added later when the structural analysis is finished.
One Community is ecologically addressing education 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 reviewing videos on raising chickens. This video was one of the best and we added it and all the primary points (with timestamps) to our behind-the-scenes chicken Google Doc. In addition, we viewed a video on why not to free range and summarized it on the doc as well. You can see some of this work here.
In addition, the core team continued developing the behind-the-scenes open source permaculture design content. This week we revised Step 3, “Develop A Conceptual Design” and began working on Step 4, “Detailed Design.” This included gathering a list of resources for essential components, making a chart to guide the detailed design process, and starting a detailed review of related video resources.
One Community is ecologically addressing education 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. 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:
This week Dan Alleck (Designer and Illustrator) completed his 56th week helping with render additions and finishing work for the rooms in the Ultimate Classroom. Here you can see his 3rd and final additions to the Blue Room representing “Technology.” This image is now on the website also.
One Community is ecologically addressing education 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 Emilio Nájera (Digital Marketer) also continued with his 52nd week as part of the marketing team. This week he created the Donations campaigns for keywords related to Highest Good Society, Highest Good, and our Methodology and Solutions that Create Solutions pages.
