One Community is facilitating 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 working in Sketchup on the outside of the Recycled Materials Village (Pod 6). We updated the railing on the second floor, added windows and doors, and started adding details to the outside area close to the Art Studio section. Recycled material such as pallets, tires, and barrels will be used to design this area.
Christian Ojeda (Mechatronic Engineer) completed his 19th week helping with the heat-recycling Communal Eco-shower and Vermiculture Bathroom designs. This week’s focus was updating the piping specifics for both freshwater and rainwater supplies to the spigots, toilets, and water fountains, as shown here.
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued helping us create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 77 of Dean’s work, this week’s focus was lighting and more object placement in the dining and presentation area, as shown here.
And Guy Grossfeld (Graphic Designer) continued helping with the Tree House Village (Pod 7) renders. This week he finished removing unneeded polygons to optimize the structures for rendering the entire village and began work on updating all the village walkways.
One Community is facilitating a global sustainability cooperative 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 work on the DIY Pipe Furniture tutorial page. This week we added 13 images to the Pipe Shelving Diagrams section with click to enlarge options and captions. We also added anchor links to the Pipe Shelving and Pipe Lighting sections and created the Pipe Lighting section outline. In addition, the team created a Pipe Shelving Instructions collage and added it to the page with a click to enlarge option.
The core team also completed the menus, formatting, addition of videos, and updates to all the pictures for the wind power tutorial. You can see some pictures of this work here and visit the website for the complete page.
Working with Ashwin Patil (Web Developer), we also finished the first round of revision suggestions for version 2.0 of the Highest Good energy search engine and updated all the search engines to be SSL-security compliant. You can see some of this work here.
Dipti Dhondarkar, (Electrical Engineer) continued with her 41st week of work on the lighting specifics for the City Center. This week’s focus was beginning the testing now for the placement of the 60+ smaller lights within the Social Dome, as shown here.
One Community is facilitating a global sustainability cooperative 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 recalculated the space needed for all of the bulk goods on the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan page to account for ceiling height, and recreated and added the image and calculations to the page, as you see here.
We also put another 5 hours into the crowdfunding campaign we are developing. This week we updated the images and files on the Transition Kitchen page and finished our research on the hexayurt construction materials costs and needs.
One Community is facilitating a global sustainability cooperative 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 week, the core team continued the process of a final proofreading and editing of all 52 lesson plans. This week we completed the Honesty and Integrity Lesson Plan and the Love and Connection Lesson Plan. This brings us to 36 of 52 finished, which is 69.2% completion.
We also continued the research and initial construction and formatting of the School Licensing and Accreditation tutorial. You can see some of this work here and we’d say we’re about 50% complete with this tutorial now.
One Community is facilitating a global sustainability cooperative 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 completed the open source and replicable annual social media strategy page and tutorial by adding the FAQ and integrating links to the page into the Highest Good society open source hub.
We also continued testing video approaches for sharing where all our collaborators and volunteers are from. What you see here is version 5.0 of this testing.
