One Community is creating and open source sharing globally replicable solutions for sustainable living. We are doing this to create complete teacher/demonstration villages that are easy enough, affordable enough, and demonstrate an attractive enough living model that they will become self-replicating. We do this with a consciousness for The Highest Good of All as a path to positive and permanent global transformation:

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 December 19th, 2014 edition (#94) of our weekly progress update detailing the previous week’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 @2:00
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:31
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:26
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @6:10
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @7:23
One Community is creating globally replicable solutions with 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 completed the final 75% of the lesson plan mindmap with the central theme of “Movement and Development.” We also completed the second half of the “Movement and Development webpage” that lists the specifics of the lesson plan. You can see both here, complete and ready for use by anyone in any learning environment to teach all subjects, to any learning level within the context of this central theme.
Behind the scenes we finished another 10% of the lesson plan design for “Open Source”, bringing us to 25% done there.
Behind the scenes we also finished a total outline redesign for the Technology and Innovation Molecule.
Behind the scenes we additionally finished the first 60% of the lesson plan design for the lesson with the central theme of “Dreams”
One Community is creating globally replicable solutions with 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 last week the core team finished adding an easy-index to the tops of all 35 of our food breakout pages for the open source large-scale gardening archive and tutorial. You can see an example of this here:
We also completed an update and featuring of the food forest open source hub, which is currently our #1 most shared page at over 2,500 shares and likes on FaceBook alone.
One Community is creating globally replicable solutions with 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 finished our thermal penetration calculations for the earthbag village dome homes and updated the earthbag heating and cooling page to include our results. These results came within 3% of our initial calculations and confirmed that we are now ready to confidently move on to the stage of testing through experimentation to get empirical data. Here’s the newest calculations and updates to the page:
We also added a What and Why section to the dome home footers, foundation and flooring open source tutorial that is part of the preparation for the crowdfunding campaign.
We also finished the other half of the materials and image updates for the custom murphy bed furniture. These updates are all the corrections needed and uncovered in the materials breakdown we just completed.
Related to that, we’re also finished 80% of the materials cost analysis for the furniture design. You can see it here where we are cost comparing all the different types of wood that could be used.
Behind the scenes we finished the first 15% of the earthdome window and door framing research and content organization and creation for the crowdfunding campaign.
In addition to this, Scott Thomas and his Shadow Ridge Signature Architecture Program team also produced these updates to the complete Earthbag Village evolving in CAD, adding details to the bathrooms, entry to the Tropical Atrium and repositioning the 3 and 6-dome clusters.
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER PROGRESS
One Community is creating globally replicable solutions with 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 last week the core team completed the rest of the Building plans for all components section for the Duplicable City Center and featured it. You can now download the CAD and Sketchup files for this structure there.
We also updated the calculations and details on the water collection page for this structure. You can see that here showing how we made our calculations and exactly how much water we expect to be able to collect off of the Duplicable City Center.
One Community is creating globally replicable solutions with 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 last week the core team continued the complete redesign of the core pages associated with our homepage. This included the first draft of this image and redesign of our About Us page. This redesign updated this page to simplify it and reorganize it to function as a guide to our extensive website.
In addition to this, we updated and featured our open source Consensus page. Click this image for the updated page:
