Facilitating a Highest Good society model built on sustainable infrastructure, a more fulfilling and enjoyable way of living, and sharing both these with others can positively transform our planet for everyone. Forwarding this movement through open source solutions combining sustainable models for food, energy, and housing with ecocentric models for fulfilled living, education, sustainable economics and earth stewardship is one way to accomplish this. Putting these together as self-replicating teacher/demonstration hubs is the “Highest Good of All” approach One Community is committed to:

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 October 4th, 2015 edition (#132) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:
Here is the bullet-point list of this last week’s design and progress discussed in detail in the video above:
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @2:02
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:19
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:23
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @5:57
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @7:16
One Community is facilitating a Highest Good society model 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 last week the core team transferred the final 50% of the written content for the Recreation and Relaxation Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Recreation and Relaxation” is now 100% complete on our website:
We also wrote the final 1/3 of the Creativity Lesson Plan behind the scenes, bringing the written portions of that one to 100% complete.
And finally, we completed and added the first 50% of the mindmap for the Recreation and Relaxation Lesson Plan to the webpage. You can see that portion of the mindmap here:
One Community is facilitating a Highest Good society model 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:
The open source Large Scale Gardening Hub portion of our website reached 100% completion this week too, so take a look there for growing information and recipes for many different varieties of edible plants!
Last but not least, we added three additional recipes from Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your BQ?) to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan – These recipes are: Bittersweet Chocolate Muffins, Quinoa Salad with Toasted Hazelnuts, and Roasted Cauliflower with Rice.
One Community is facilitating a Highest Good society model 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 continued what we hope will be the final revision of the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This week included more floor construction narrative additions, describing the concrete pour process, screeding method and other concrete details, adding more details and formatting to the twine and barbed wire sections, and more bag prep and filling specifics. We’d say we’re now 35% complete with this behind-the-scenes revision.
We also created this updated image for the Footers, Foundations and Flooring. Next we’ll use this image to further update the AutoCAD files.
On the Straw Bale Village (Pod 2), we created this AutoCAD update to the aesthetics of what the central foldable chimney will look like.
Additionally, we completed about 25% of the revisions, rewriting, and alignment corrections to the presentation the Intern Team created for the Tree House Village (Pod 7). The initial work for this was led by Ana Carolina Salomao Faria (Industrial Design and Service Design Student). Here you can see sneak previews of this project developing behind the scenes. Complete details will be released on our website when the revision process is 100% complete.
One Community is facilitating a Highest Good society model 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 updating the Sketchup 3-D for the Duplicable City Center. This week we worked on updating the Dining Dome walk-in freezers and refrigerators. What you see here are the preliminary designs:
Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer) also began evolving the Pipe Furniture designs started with the Intern Team and progressed working with our core team. Here you can see her initial process book exploring the options:
We also continued transferring the updates from Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant) to the Control Systems and Automation page. You can see this work here and we’d say we are about 40% complete with the total page redesign.
Behind the scenes Lucas Tsutsui da Silva (4th-year Computer Engineering Student), working under Mike’s guidance, continued working on one of the room connector decks for the Control System for the Duplicable City Center. Also below are a couple fun screenshots from one of our collaborative calls including Mike in Canada, Lucas in Brazil, and Jae in the US discussing what you see here:
One Community is facilitating a Highest Good society model 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:
Oz Czerski (Lawyer Specializing in Trademark and Copyright Law) also completed the second 50% of writing the Open Source and Copyrights and Trademarking tutorial behind the scenes, then we started adding Oz’s work to the website. What you see here is the first 50% of this work on the site:
