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 April 3rd, 2016 edition (#158) 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:

One Community is Highest Good creating 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 first 25% of the written content for the Summer 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 “Summer.”
Behind the scenes, we wrote the final 25% of the written part of the Summer Lesson Plan, bringing it to 100% completely written.
We also completed the first 25% of the mindmap for the Cooperation and Collaboration Lesson Plan, and added the theme icons to the website, which you see here:
One Community is Highest Good creating 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 finalized the organization of 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 had a final additional pioneer proofread and edit the page. The page is now officially launched!
One Community is Highest Good creating 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 determining and describing step-by-step applications of polyethylene to various locations within the FFF CAD drawing, particularly focusing on the footer and the water barrier separation between the foundation gravel bags and earthbags. We’d say we are now 75% complete with this total update and rewrite behind the scenes.
Working on the Tree House Village (Pod 7), Jesika Rohrbach (Architectural Drafter, Designer, and 3-D Modeler) also designed the details you see here for the various recreation spaces including outside play area details, game room details both inside and outside, arts and crafts structure details both inside and outside, and more.
Dean Scholz, Architectural Designer, further developed what’s necessary for us to create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 13 of this work that continued with shade structure design and placement.
Brianna Johnson (Interior Designer), also continued evolving the renders for the Straw Bale Village (Pod 2). What you see here is the 2nd render for the kids’ playroom, now with enhanced colors, pictures on the walls added using Photoshop, and other aesthetic details.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also created these new render roughs and version 2.0 of the updated layout proposal for a new graphic to share the features of the Tropical Atrium that is the center of the Earthbag Village (Pod 1).
One Community is Highest Good creating 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:
…and these pictures show the 2nd floor rendering scenes, where we updated the scenery background, adjusted the shadows, and set up textures for the furniture, floor and musical instruments.
Bupesh Seethala (Interior Designer) also finished his part of the work for the Natural Pool and Spa mechanical room details. Here you see a finished render of this room covered in stone and featuring a waterfall.
One Community is facilitating global change progress 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 added the tutorial you see here for helping anyone who joins us to do research for the Open Source and Patents: Defensive Publishing Costs Research page. This tutorial was created by Oz Czerski, Lawyer Specializing in Trademark and Copyright Law.
We also made final edits and continued the multi-hour reorganization of the icons designed by Graphic Designer, Ivan Manzurov. The icons we finished and organized this week were the Highest Good Food and Highest Good Education icons shown here. We’d say we are now about 40% done with this graphics task.
The core team additionally updated the One Community Now Page to include the specifics you see here discussing how we organize virtually and what we’re focusing on now, why we’re focusing on what we are, and how this applies securing funding.
Richard Tanzer (Patent Agent) also continued editing our Open Source and Patents page. The original page was created by Oz Czerski and here you can see Richard’s second round of updates and edits happening behind the scenes. We’d say Richard is about 30% done with the complete page edit and update.
