Green-living community solutions are being developed that include a more holistic approach to sustainability. They combine sustainable approaches to food, energy, and housing with fulfilled living, open source and free education, and Highest Good economics models. The purpose is to develop a more enjoyable way of living that is sustainable and for The Highest Good of All life on our shared 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 January 3, 2016 edition (#145) 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: @1:57
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:11
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:19
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @5:22
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @6:49
One Community is developing green-living community solutions 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 25% of the written content for the Winter Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan is purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Winter” and the written part is now complete on our site.
Behind the scenes, we wrote an additional 1/4 of the Community Lesson Plan, bringing the behind-the-scenes written part of that lesson plan to approximately 60% complete.
One Community is developing green-living community solutions 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 last week the core team completed another round of organizing on the streamlined version of our Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan page, which includes contributions provided by Naturopathic Doctor Matt Marturano (creator of the COHERENT model for comprehensive digestive health). This week we added additional images and links to the page, bringing the page to 80% complete.
We also 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: Christmas Muesli, Sweet & Sour Cabbage & Vegan Beef Soup, and Spicy Vegan Sausage & Black Bean Soup:
One Community is developing green-living community solutions 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 put another 10 hours into the behind-the-scenes revision for the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the crowdfunding campaign we are developing. This week’s focus was writing up steps for constructing the stem wall and domes, backfilling, and more gutter construction details.
We also added additional edits from the text portions on our web page for the Tree House Village (Pod 7) to the presentation the Intern Team created over the summer. The updates to the presentation are now approximately 65% finished and the presentation will be released on our website when the revision process is 100% complete.
One Community is developing green-living community solutions 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:
In Sketchup 3-D we also constructed the wardrobe/closet, chair, and the bed and made some minor adjustments to the table from last week. This brings us to what we think is 100% complete with the City Center 3-D design work needed for renders.
In addition to this, Bupesh Seethala, Interior Designer, also built the Pallet bed in AutoCAD, as you can see here:
And Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer), continued with these additional Pipe Couch designs for the Duplicable City Center library. The drawing you see here are her 4th generation drawing exploring additional adjustment options for the back of the couch as well as stationary couch-back options.
Behind the scenes Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant) and Lucas Tsutsui da Silva (4th-year Computer Engineering Student) began exploring the next steps for physical testing of the Control Systems design. Here is a picture of Lucas holding up the box of components Mike sent him…
…and here is a picture of them all laid out on a table. These are the components Mike and Lucas will be building the first prototype with:
One Community is developing green-living community solutions 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 last week the core team continued our work on the Highest Good Network with Andrew Herman (Software Engineer and Core Member of Futurist Playground). Here is a snapshot of this work developing behind the scenes:
Oz Czerski, Lawyer Specializing in Trademark and Copyright Law, also helped us by writing this first behind-the-scenes draft of our open source tutorial about patents.
