Localized ecology is sustainability practices and management on the local level. Putting the power of intelligently and sustainably managing our shared environments in the hands of those people who live in them. One Community calls this living and creating for The Highest Good of All and we’re open source and free-sharing tools, resources, and DIY instructions for all aspects of creating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities capable of accomplishing this.

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 7th, 2017 edition (#250) 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 supporting localized Ecology 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:
The core team continued Sketchup design for the open source outdoor areas of the Recycled Materials Village (Pod 6). This week we finished designing the fitness stations, updated the benches in the yoga area, and continued working on the main equipment area.
The core team also continued adding our final design content to the Water Recycling Net Zero Bathroom Design page. This week’s focus was new formatting, adding additional calculation details, and finishing the written content for the first 3rd of the tutorial. We’d say we’re now about 30% complete with the page.
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued helping us create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 95 of Dean’s work, this week’s focus was designing the cabinet door and hinge details you see here.
Dan Alleck (Designer and Illustrator) completed his 11th week working on the Compressed Earth Block Village render additions. This week he added additional people to the East Rooftop View and created this new final render of the front access way. Both of these images are now live on the site also.
Aparna Tandon (Architect) continued her work on the Compressed Earth Block Village external elements. What you see here is her 43rd week of work that created this presentation for the Mediation Labyrinth and Amphitheater that make up Zones 1-5. These images are now on the website too.
One Community is supporting localized Ecology 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:
Renan Dantas (Mechanical Engineer) continued with his 21st week working on the Duplicable City Center AutoCAD updates. This week’s focus was updating the 3D file to match the updated dome rotations completed in 2D.
Dipti Dhondarkar, (Electrical Engineer) continued with her 64th week of work on the lighting specifics for the City Center. This week’s focus was continuing the modeling of the mezzanine area, 3rd floor sunrise patio, and 4th floor cupola, as shown here.
One Community is supporting localized Ecology 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 formulas and data for the food calculations on the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan pages, and began creating updated images to match the new calculations, as you see here.
One Community is supporting localized Ecology 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 adding to the education Evaluation and Evolution process open source pages and tutorials. This week we added additional content to the Collaborative Team Roles and Training page, as you can see here.
One Community is supporting localized Ecology 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:
We also created a new Instagram icon and added that throughout our website.
