It’s time for a human eco-synthesis capable of regenerating our planet through intelligent and conscientious stewardship. One Community is forwarding this process through open source and sustainable approaches to all aspects of living. A global cooperative of teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities are purposed to lead the human eco-synthesis and regenerative process.

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 March 25th, 2018 edition (#261) 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 facilitating human eco-synthesis 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:
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued with the Cob Village (Pod 3) AutoCAD layout updates. Here is update 106 of Dean’s work. This week he continued development of the landscaping details, added the playground equipment, and roads.
Mihaela “Michelle” Pinzaru (Interior Designer and Architectural Drafter) also completed her 10th week working on the Tree House Village (Pod 7) residential renders. This week she created the three final renders you see here. These renders are now live on the website also.
One Community is facilitating human eco-synthesis 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:
Haoxuan “Hayes” Lei(Structural Engineer) continued work on the City Center structural engineering by addressing the areas identified by the core team. This included creating a dead load calculation table for the restroom on first floor, adding functional area figures for second and third floor, revising the beam design chapter of the live load and dead load report, and adding a beam layout sketch to the appendix.
David Olivero (Mechanical Engineer & Data Scientist) completed his 15th week helping with the HVAC Designs for the Duplicable City Center. This week’s focus was further research into minisplit application and beginning the AutoCAD design process, as shown here.
Dipti Dhondarkar, (Electrical Engineer) continued with her 67th week of work on the lighting specifics for the City Center. This week’s focus was finishing fixing errors and filling in the final details on the lighting spreadsheet and beginning testing different lighting strategies for the basement.
One Community is facilitating human eco-synthesis 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 work on the complete Highest Good food rollout plan and cost analysis. We began writing detailed information of activities for the initial 3 people, and added items and links to the details list for 20-50 people, as shown here.
In addition, the core team continued research and development of the open source Permaculture Design for the property. This week we started evolving our zone plan by further exploring property elevations, water flow, road access, and structure placement.
One Community is facilitating human eco-synthesis 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 week, the core team continued developing the Lesson Plans How-to tutorial page. This week we wrote the final example lesson plan called the “Advanced Learners – Reserved” example. You can see some of this new content here.
One Community is facilitating human eco-synthesis 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:
Ashwin Patil (Web Developer) tested approaches to improve our search engine usability on mobile devices. What you see on the left of this picture is the new mobile presentation. On the right of the picture is the desktop version.
The Highest Good Network software team consisting of Sowmya Manohar (Software Engineer, Web Developer & Net Application Developer), Shubhra Mittal (Software Delivery Manager), Priyanka Singh (Software Developer), and Asha Tadimari (Software Engineer). This week the team created the time log screen, upgraded Ember CLI version from 2.17 to 3.0, fixed the errors in the radio buttons showing the active/inactive status of the project, implemented the functionalities of canceling tasks, fields editable by admins only, tooltip hover and transition back to the projects page once the project is created/saved…. and we launched beta version 1.0 of the software for initial testing!
