Open source and free-shared designs are one approach for jump starting global eco-communities. Designs like this can cover all aspects of eco-community establishment and maintenance while also providing templates for stand-alone implementation by individuals too. Comprehensively providing models like this has the potential to influence and stimulate the entire sustainability industry, moving us closer to global sustainability and Highest Good living models for all.

One Community is jump starting global eco-communities 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 all of the written content for the Cosmos Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Cosmos” is now 100% completely written on our website.
Behind the scenes, we completed 100% of the written part of the Play Lesson Plan.
We also completed the final 25% of the mindmap for the Consciousness Lesson Plan, bringing it to 100% complete, which you see here:
One Community is jump starting global eco-communities 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 finished updating the anchor links on all of the new food pages; Vegan Rice Recipes & Omnivore Rice Recipes, Vegan Potato Recipes & Omnivore Potato Recipes, Vegan Sweet Potato Recipes & Omnivore Sweet Potato Recipes, and the Vegan Pasta Recipes & Omnivore Pasta Recipes pages, bringing all of the pages to ~60% completion:
One Community is jump starting global eco-communities 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 working with Ashwini Ramesh (Civil Engineer and Project Manager) put another combined total of 20 hours into the crowdfunding campaign we are developing. This week’s focus was behind-the-scenes writing and editing of the Sustainable Site Selection, Planning and Preparation GoogleDoc that also contains the Site Clearing, Preparation, and Maintenance details. You can see some of this work here:
The core team also created 20 new pages of the web infrastructure for sustainable villages #’s 3-7. You can see a collage of this work here and access them all through the site map.
And we created these 5 new layout outlines for the 7 villages online book:
The core team also created, and added to the book and website these two final renders of the Recycled Materials Village (Pod 6) Dance Studio and Music Room.
In addition to this, the core team continued working on the renders for the Communal Eco-shower Structures that are part of the Earthbag Village (Pod 1). This week we updated the texture of the walls, adjusted the lighting, and added internal details.
Adrienne Gould-Choquette (Mechanical Engineer) also finished her 3rd week with the team, helping work on the standardized AutoCAD layers and line weights template we are creating. This week’s focus was adding a line weight index and updating and testing the tutorial by beginning to apply it to the Shipping Container Village (Pod 5), as shown here.
Lianyi Zhao (Mechanical Engineer) completed his 3rd week of working on the Net-zero Communal Bathroom modeling. This week’s focus was continued modeling of the structure and internal details for the shower structure and Net-zero bathrooms in the Earthbag Village (Pod 1).
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer), continued helping us create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 50 of his work that continues focusing on internal home views. What you are seeing is a series of 66 renders (the final 7 are new) showing the testing and development of the lighting in one of these units.
Hamilton Mateca (AutoCAD and Revit Drafter and Designer) also finished his 25th week helping with the Compressed Earth Block Village (Pod 4) design details. This week’s focus was window and front entryway design and updates, as shown here.
Guy Grossfeld (Graphic Designer) also created this new and final main Shipping Container Village (Pod 5) render, fixing several alignment issues and external elements.

One Community is jump starting global eco-communities 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 render and book layout creation for the Duplicable City Center. This included adding people to this render of the outside portion of the natural pool and this new layout for the page of the book that will feature the pool and the library.
The core team also created a new render for the natural pool area inside the Duplicable City Center Social Dome. We removed a few plants to open up the area and added additional lighting and other aesthetic details.
Guy Grossfeld (Graphic Designer) began working on adding food and people to this render of the City Center root cellar.
Haoxuan “Hayes” Lei (Structural Engineer) and Shuna Ni (Masters of Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering PhD) also continued their work on the City Center structural engineering. This week’s work was initial section drawings for the braces, as show here.
Ramya Vudi (Electrical Engineer) and Shubham Agrawal (Electrical Engineer) continued their work on the electrical and Control and Automation systems designs for the City Center with Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant). Here are pictures of this week’s collaborative call and the results of last week’s work calculating the updated battery and solar panel array sizing.
One Community is jump starting global eco-communities 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 the core team, working with Dakota Kaiser (Ambassador of The Tribe of Awakening Sovereignty), began developing a new open source and replicable annual social media strategy.
