Replicable Highest Good living models combining sustainable approaches to food, energy, housing, fulfilled living, education, economics, and earth stewardship could create a new paradigm for how people choose to live. We think open source and free-shared approaches to all of these areas are the key to establishing 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 November 22nd, 2015 edition (#139) 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:
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @2:01
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:12
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:19
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @5:34
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @6:56
One Community is developing a replicable highest good living approach 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 50% of the written content for the Fall 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 “Fall.”
We additionally completed and added the final 50% of the mindmap for the Energy Lesson Plan to the webpage. You can see that mindmap here:
Behind the scenes, we also wrote the first 1/3 of the Winter Lesson Plan, bringing the behind-the-scenes written part for that to about 30% complete.
One Community is developing a replicable highest good living approach 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 completed another additional 10% on the streamlined version of our Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan page, bringing that to approximately 40% complete. This week we added updates to the contributions provided by Naturopathic Doctor Matt Marturano (creator of the COHERENT model for comprehensive digestive health).
We also added three additional recipes from Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your BQ?) to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan – These recipes are: Fruit Salad with Poppyseed Dressing, Pasta with Tomatoes & Spinach, and Cream of Celery Soup with Roasted Red Pepper:
One Community is developing a replicable highest good living approach 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 continued working on the behind-the-scenes revision for the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This week included this excavation profile drawing for the person working on getting this all into AutoCAD. Also additional updates and reorganization of the narrative to reflect what we’ve learned through drawing out the excavation details. We’d say this brings us to 53% complete with this total rewrite and update.
We also added all the Straw Bale Village (Pod 2) renders you see here to the website. These outstanding renders are from Sayonara Batista de Oliveira, 4th-year Architecture and Urban Planning Student, and they show what all the common spaces will look like, what the rooms will look like, and all the other most interesting aspects of this village from the Highest Good Housing component of our project. Visit the website to see these renders in more detail.
One Community is developing a replicable highest good living approach 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 finished updating the Sketchup 3-D for the Duplicable City Center kitchen. This week included final touchups and textures and the pictures you see here are from the final review of this area without the walls of the dome itself to get in the way. We’d say finishing the kitchen area brings us to 75% done with the complete 3-D update.
Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer), continued developing and evolving the Pipe Furniture designs. What you see here are the second series of renders for the final structural design for the chairs for the Duplicable City Center library. These renders show these designs with darker wood tones and galvanized pipe. You can also start to see what these chairs will look like when in use.
Behind the scenes Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant) and Lucas Tsutsui da Silva (4th-year Computer Engineering Student), continued work on the the Control Systems design. Here’s where it has progressed to:
Additionally, here are some pictures from our weekly collaborative call showing Mike demonstrating how technology is shrinking:
…and his first 3-D printed parts from his new 3-D printer that you can see most clearly in the background of these pictures:
One Community is developing a replicable highest good living approach 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 continued building the Copyrights, Trademarks, Patents and Using them to Support Open Source and Free-sharing page. This page shares the amazing work of Oz Czerski, a Lawyer Specializing in Trademark and Copyright Law. This week’s progress included another complete round of edits, image additions, and some more formatting of all of Oz’s work. We’d say this brings this page to about 90% completion.
