One Community is helping build a global collaboration for the Highest Good through sustainable and self-replication community models. We are doing this by designing and open source sustainable approaches to food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more.

One Community is facilitating global collaboration for the highest good 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:
Harsha Gaddipati (Sustainability Researcher) also joined the team researching the most sustainable insulation options as well as the most sustainable window options. You can see his initial research here.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 54th week leading the development of the Murphy bed instructions. This week Shadi finished the last round of revisions and additions to the clothing and storage area, now this section of the plans to go to testing again in 3D.
One Community is facilitating global collaboration for the highest good 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 confirmed all the furniture sizes and outlined all the needed furniture updates shown here for AutoCAD.
Tanya Griffin, Aubryanne Boyle, and Allie Marsh (Interior Designers from Lotus Design Pros) completed their 24th week helping with the Duplicable City Center interior design details. This week’s focus was checking and updating the final cost analysis details shown here.

One Community is facilitating global collaboration for the highest good 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 with week 12 of our research into lake and water retention landscape creation as an additional source of water for food production and the Duplicable City Center sprinkler systems. This week we finished the contour and ridge-point dam designs and finalized the demonstration-placement locations for all of them.
One Community is facilitating global collaboration for the highest good 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 the core team continued working on the redesign of the Ultimate Classroom. This week we added items to four classrooms and an additional urinal to the men’s restroom. You can see some of this work-in-progress here.
One Community is facilitating global collaboration for the highest good 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 analyzed our YouTube results for this year in comparison to last year to show significant improvements have been made through our changes to our presentation strategy.
The core team also used a new tool for analyzing our Google Grant Adwords campaigns showing we still have a lot of room for improvement there.
And Emilio Nájera (Digital Marketer) continued with his 32nd week as part of the marketing team by creating a Google Ads review and snapshot covering the last 6 months of his development of these campaigns, researched the steps to maximize linking Google Ads to Google Analytics, and created a May 2019 summary of results as our next marketing starting point.
In addition to this, Brian Gilb (Project Management Professional – PMP) continued with his 8th week of updating our business plan and project management strategy by further developing the full marketing plan. This included conducting market research, positioning of the brand, analyzing the competition, and crafting a message and profile for One Community’s target market. He also helped with more outlining of the Open Source Library project and work breakdown structure.
