We are a group of people making a difference. Our goal is to help others make a difference too. We are doing this through open source and free-sharing the path and the resources to make it easy enough, affordable enough, and attractive enough to spread Highest Good of All thinking and creation globally:

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. Here is our weekly progress update (#60) covering our development and accomplishments for the week of April 14, 2014:
Here is the bullet-point list of this last week’s design and progress discussed in detail in the video above:
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION @1:50
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @2:48
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:12
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @5:16
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @6:15
We are improving life on Earth 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:
We are people making a difference through open source sharing 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 added 8 new breakout pages to the open source food forest portal covering each of the sections of the food forest plants in detail. As of this posting, that page has gotten over 1600 Facebook shares.
We also created 3-D terrain for the Aesthetic and Diversity-focused Zen Aquapini Design. This terrain will also be used for the earthbag village an other renders:
And we added the diversity and purchasing details to the heirloom carrots section of the large-scale gardening page – this includes 7 featured carrot types and purchasing details for all 11.
We are people making a difference through open source sharing 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 returned to working on the 3-D details for the earthbag village because we’ve needed to update the planting plan. Here is a collage of that work in progress:
We also dove deeper into exploring the options for heating the homes within the Earthbag Village in cooler climates and when focusing on our maximum affordability goals, 2-year plan for village completion, and working with a limited energy allowance. This chart shows the calculations we made to determine that the best approach will be:
In addition to this, the Duplicable City Center will be a constantly maintained environment for large-scale recreation and relaxation. Here are the calculations showing cost, labor, and BTU production comparisons.
We are people making a difference through open source sharing a Duplicable and Sustainable City Center that is LEED Platinum certified/Sustainable, can feed 200 people at a time, can provide laundry for over 300 people, beautiful, spacious, saves resources, saves money, and saves space:
This last week the core team began the initial heat calculations for this structure. The key determination we need to make is that heating this structure will be possible with 100% off-grid energy in an area where temperatures can reach as low as zero degrees Fahrenheit. Here’s a screenshot of the beginning of this process:
We are people making a difference through open source sharing 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 created super easy to use information sharing archives on our Highest Good Facebook page. These archives can be added to by anyone, shared with one click, and they cover Food, Energy, Education, Life-hacks, Housing, Energy, Water, and more:
