Replicable Highest Good creation has the potential to build a bridge between pragmatism and idealism and positively change the world for all of us. One Community is facilitating this process with open source approaches to all aspects of sustainable and Highest Good of All living:

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 7th, 2014 edition (#88) of our weekly progress update detailing the previous week’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 @1:57
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:14
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:20
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @6:00
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @7:27
One Community is facilitating replicable and Highest Good creation 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 finished the first 25% of the lesson plan mindmap with the central theme of “Opposites.” Here it is:
We also finished the final 50% of the complete “Opposites” lesson plan webpage. You can see that below. This open source lesson page can be used immediately by anyone in any educational environment, working with any age or educational level, to teach any and all subjects within and using the context of “Opposites.”
One Community is facilitating replicable and Highest Good creation 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 finished three more complete breakout pages from the large-scale gardening page. These included the Melons page, the Parsnips page, and the Parsley page. You can see all three pages below and you can click on the images to visit the complete pages for all the detailed plant descriptions, planting guidelines, cultural considerations, and more. These new pages load faster and also give us the space we’ll need to add recipes, gardening tips, harvesting and canning tips, and videos. Contact us if you have any great resources related to any of these plant species.

One Community is facilitating replicable and Highest Good creation 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 began working on the details for the central Tropical Atrium recreation space that will house the Earthbag Village water storage and recycle the village used shower-water heat. The four images you see below show the water reservoir and the beginning calculations and designs for how we’ll be insulating the below-ground aspects of the inside of this structure to turn the entire area into a giant thermal mass.
Behind the scenes we also finished another 40% of the crowdfunding campaign details for the open source dome home plumbing. We’re now 70% done there. We also set up the first 10% of the upcoming webpage you can see here:
In addition to this we continued organizing all the parts for both of the custom murphy bed furniture. Here you can see both end tables color coded and organized by size along with the bottom of the bed itself being organized the same way:
Last but not least, our newest consultant Scott Thomas and his Shadow Ridge Signature Architecture Program team began working on the Earthbag Village shower and toilet domes. Here are the initial bathroom concept images along with draft 1 of the initial communal shower design.
One Community is facilitating replicable and Highest Good creation 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 last week the core team finished the additional 25% of the lighting plan overview details for the Duplicable City Center lighting plan page. You can see those details here and click the image to visit the lighting plan page for additional pictures and other specifics. The goal of this lighting plan is to help us achieve LEED Platinum certification for this structure.
We also completed another 20% of the Control Systems page. You can see these new additions below, bringing us to 30% completion of this page that will share the control and monitoring systems setup, maintenance, evolution, and data gathering and sharing covering water and electricity use for the Duplicable City Center and the Earthbag Village (Pod 1):
One Community is facilitating replicable and Highest Good creation 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 updated and featured our page that we feel is most specific to the idea of replicable Highest Good creation: our For The Highest Good of All page. Highest Good creation and thinking is our #1 value and this page discusses how we use this value in decision making and as a foundation for world change.
