Isn’t it time for a global good news engine? We have the ability to create a full-time living environment for people dedicated to The Highest Good of all people and life on this planet. People interested in living sustainably and creating open source and free-shared sustainability components that include food, energy, and housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more. Creating endless foundations for good news, good creations, good events, and endless promotion and expansion of them all. This is what One Community is doing and this update completes 6 years of our progress reports to that effect.

One Community is developing a global good news engine 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:
And, Dan Alleck (Designer and Illustrator) completed his 39th week helping with Earthbag Village render additions. This week he began work on this Earthbag Village render of a six-dome cluster by improving colors and replacing and adding people.
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued working on the Earthbag Village (Pod 1). Here is weekly update #153 from Dean. This week’s focus, as shown in these images, was finishing the furniture for the non-ADA bathrooms and running test renders.
And Elizabeth Kahn (Environmental Consultant) completed her 9th week as a researcher with our team. This week she researched additional resources and all the menstrual cup details discussed earlier and added to the Most Sustainable Toilets and Most Sustainable Urinals pages.
One Community is developing a global good news engine 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 the process of modeling the new Duplicable City Center interior design details for the library. This week we moved the mirror down, redesigned the branches and bookshelves, and adjusted the love seat and sofa from the Sketchup warehouse to match actual dimensions and color we’ll be buying. We also corrected the size of all the tables and applied the tree trunk sketchup texture to the columns.
The core team also continued adding content to the City Center open source HVAC design tutorial. This week we finished the “Applying LEED in the Duplicable City Center” Case Study section and created all the content and graphics shown here.
Tanya Griffin, Aubryanne Boyle, and Allie Marsh (Interior Designers from Lotus Designs) completed their 12th week helping with the Duplicable City Center interior design details. This week’s focus was creating the 2nd-generation storyboards for the public restrooms and Social Dome and brainstorming lighting and furniture ideas. You can see some of this work here.
And James Herrigel (Student Researcher) also completed his 14th week researching sustainable materials. This week’s focus was beginning research on sustainable adhesives, types of adhesives, and their potentially harmful effects. You can see the beginnings of this here.
Sneha Dongre (Structural Engineer) also continued with her 5th week helping with the Duplicable City Center structural details. This week’s focus was finishing cleanup and removal of all unneeded lines in the AutoCAD file, assigning everything to proper layers, deleting old layers, and adding a riser to the dome foundations. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is developing a global good news engine 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 writing the behind-the-scenes narrative and detailed food rollout plan for the various stages of development. This week we continued researching goat care and fencing, making revisions and additions on the G. Doc. with the updated information you can see here.
One Community is building the foundations for how humanity creates a sustainable world 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. We’ll report on the final two elements to be finished as we develop them.
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:
One Community is developing a global good news engine 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 organized all the action items, bug fixes, and developmental steps needed to bring on a new 6-person team to finish developing the Highest Good Network software. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
And Emilio Nájera (Digital Marketer) continued with his 23rd week as part of the marketing team. This week’s focus was refactoring 4 more keyword strategies including the Rabbits, Chickens, Aquaculture, and Wildlife Stewardship pages. He also finished building the actual ad campaigns for the Open Source AutoCAD landing pages. You can see some of this work here.
