One Community is a for The Highest Good of All 501(c)3 non-profit organization designing and open source free-sharing everything needed so people interested in participating in an evolution of sustainability and transformational world change can do so anywhere in the world. We are doing this in the form of seven comprehensive sustainability village models that provide what we feel most people will consider to be a more fulfilled way of living. The components of these models will be able to be duplicated modularly or as complete and self-propagating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities that are not only model solutions, but solution-creating models that provide even more research, blueprints, and necessary support for successively easier and more affordable and creative duplication everywhere. This is our weekly progress update (#14) covering our accomplishments for the week of May 27th, 2013.

Our three investor pages are updated and complete! This is super exciting because it A) took a ton of time and B) because what would help One Community the most right now would be funding to secure the property. You can visit our LOCATION ESSENTIALS PROPERTY PAGE to read about all the work we’ve already invested in this location and the criteria used during the 2-year selection process. We feel securing this property is currently the #1 largest step we could take because it will:
The three updated investor pages are regarding property details, our most comprehensive overview of One Community, and funding options. Take a look at the pages and please SHARE THEM if you’d like to help us! “Likes” and “Shares” on these pages specifically are super helpful because they spread the word AND demonstrate that people are interested and supportive of what we are creation.

Here’s our first generation details map of exactly what will be planted in the large-scale food production aquapini. Every number has a corresponding plant or tree and those details are coming soon too. Next step along with building out the plant details on the planting and harvesting details page, is to combine this map with the building layout plans and clean it up as a usable and duplicable blueprint for others to follow. We will also:
We’ve also continued to make progress on the earthbag construction open source village with the help and volunteer work of John Bassist (organizer of this e-group hub wiki as well as this Needs/Instincts Centered Economics (NICE) Facebook page). These pictures show the domes with 10 windows to help us achieve the final product of a 75 dome village with each dome having one window facing North (passive lighting in the summer without excessive heat) and one facing South (passive heating in the winter). Once we’ve got this one dome exactly the way we want it, we will duplicate the model 75 times for the whole village, add in the patios and stairs, add in the landscaping, etc. and then delete 8 of the windows off each dome to leave only one facing North and one facing South.
Additional earthbag village drawings were also completed this last week by Doug Stenhouse (Architect and Water Color Artist). These drawing reflect addition of the buttress walls and the elevation changes we had to make due to the plumbing necessary for water collection.
This last week we also completed the Community, Family, and Social Skills curriculum page! This is our 3rd to last page of the Curriculum for Life component of the open source and free-shared Education for Life program.
