One Community is forwarding global sustainability and healing through open source and free-shared tools, tutorials, and resources covering all aspects of sustainability. We will use them to build One Community as the first of a global cooperative of self-replicating teacher/demonstration hubs working together and open sourcing everything we do for The Highest Good of all people and life on our planet.

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 November 4, 2018 edition (#293) 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 HOUSING: @7:40
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @9:31
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @11:12
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @11:52
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @12:57
One Community is facilitating global sustainability and healing 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 the core team continued design updates to the open source Murphy bed furniture assembly instructions. The focus this week was rebuilding the Murphy bed in SketchUp using the newest assembly instructions. In doing so we identified the swivel and gas pistons placement locations. You can see some of this work-in-progress here.
Dan Alleck (Designer and Illustrator) completed his 28th week helping with render additions. This week he created this second-generation Earthbag Village (Pod 1) render by adding people, plants, and other details.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 28th week leading the development of the Murphy bed instructions. This week he selected more render perspectives, integrated the new bolt graphics where appropriate, added a callout section for the hinge on 6.6.12, updated the swivel measurements, and reassigned pieces to have consecutive values and consistent prefixes, relabeled all the pieces throughout, and redid the mini parts lists on all the pages.
One Community is facilitating global sustainability and healing 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 working on the Sketchup Duplicable City Center updates for the Living Dome. We finished all the windows on the second floor and began working with the first floor windows. You can see some of this work here.
The core team also started developing the Duplicable City Center Sprinkler and Emergency Systems Design page. This week we finished the Table of Contents, References, What section, Details intro, and Classifications section and graphics. Some of which you can see here.
Dipti Dhondarkar (Electrical Engineer) also continued developing the lighting specifics for the City Center. This is Dipti’s 102nd week volunteering on this task and the focus this week was creating DiaLUX exports of all the lighting layouts and creating a new zonal floor plan cleaned of all the textures so we can start moving the lights over to the Master File. You can see some of this work here.
Aparna Tandon (Architect) also continued with her 4th week helping with the design and evaluation details for applying the WELL Building Standards™ to the Duplicable City Center. This week she researched the Materials and Resources category of LEED Version 4, summarized the guidelines for meeting the prerequisites, and explored how they will overlap with the WELL air feature, enhanced materials safety, toxic materials reduction, and mind feature regarding materials transparency. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is facilitating global sustainability and healing 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 wrapped up the research of chicken coops and began working on rabbits. We decided on nine rabbits to begin with and started outlining the implementation details. You can see some of this work-in-progress here and from our behind-the-scenes Google Doc.
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 facilitating global sustainability and healing 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 Emilio Nájera (Digital Marketer) continued with his 4th week helping the marketing team. This week he researched keywords for “Mechanical Engineering,” “Video Designer/Editor/Producer/Videographer,” “Software Developer,” and “General Contractor.”
In addition to this, the core team working with the Highest Good Network software team consisting of Shubhra Mittal (Software Delivery Manager) and Aishwarya Singh (Computer Science Engineer) continued developing the software. This week we moved all our sensitive information to a new location so we could open source our development so far, added those open source details to the website, implemented logging and monitoring for the HGN middle tier in production and development, and started working on developing the new dashboard in React. You can see some of this work here.
