Restoring global eco-balance can be accomplished if enough people participate. Increasing participation sufficiently can predictably be achieved if it is easy enough, affordable enough, and demonstrated as attractive enough for mainstream involvement. An open source evolution of sustainability that combines physical sustainability with emotional sustainability to create a better way of living is the most viable and efficient path we see for global implementation and we are creating it for The Highest Good of All:

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 March 6th, 2015 edition (#105) 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 @2:01
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:47
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:59
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @6:57
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @8:10
One Community is restoring global eco-balance 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 another 30% of the Technology and Innovation Molecule graphic, which you can see here. This brings us to 100% complete with this image and Subject that covers the greatest minds, inventions, and creations of all time, learning strategies, test-taking strategies, technology implementation, systems theory and analysis, and more:
We also researched and added this new section to the open source and free-shared on-line education resources archive. This new section includes 28 free-textbook and other free book resources, continuing to maintain this page as the largest source of free education resources in the world:
Paige Allison Donatelli (Graphic Designer and Owner Operator of Namaste Living in a Material World) also finished the first 20% of the image creation for the lesson plan we’re working on with the central theme of “Civilization.” When complete on the site, this lesson plan will teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment using the central theme of “Civilization.”
One Community is restoring global eco-balance 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:
In addition to this, Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your QB?) helped us with this new Lentil Artichoke Stew recipe, complete with making the recipe and taking the picture you see here. You can find these details on the vegan section of the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan and added to the beans and alliums pages too.
One Community is restoring global eco-balance 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 laying out the specifics for the Open Source Murphy bed furniture assembly details behind the scenes. These are part of the Earthbag Village and the crowdfunding campaign plan and new updates included cutting lumber and labeling pieces for the two nightstands. What you see here is all this behind-the-scenes work-in-progress. We estimate we are now 45% complete with what is needed for the website.
Also behind the scenes we finished the final 10% of the earthdome window and door framing. Here are pictures of all this behind-the-scenes formatting, writing, and image creation needed before we could start moving these specifics to the website – which is the next step:
In addition to this, we added the rest of the amazing work and calculation details from Samuel Soroaster (Permaculturalist and sustainable designer from Green New World) to the eco-bathroom and shower open source hub. The new sections you see here are sections 5-7 including Dry Urinals, Sewage system/Biodigester calculations, and initial Energy Consumption calculations. This brings us to what we’d say is about 75% complete with the foundational design of this system.
Scott Thomas and his Shadow Ridge Signature Architecture Program team also began putting together the Earthbag Village shared accommodation 3-dome cluster designs you see here, complete with furniture layouts showing two couple’s domes and a children’s dome:
They also did this for the 6-dome clusters that you can see here. These works in progress consist mostly of Murphy bed dome designs with a shared student’s dome and a children’s dome:
One Community is restoring global eco-balance 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 added new details on the specific systems for the sustainable water heating resource page. This is sharing the excellent work of Ron Payne (Mechanical Engineer and HVAC / Thermal Designer).
Aravind Batra and his team at P2S Engineering also produced these mechanical zoning plans. These would be the areas that we’re seeking a mechanical contractor to zone out individually (with individual control) for the radiant flooring systems.
One Community is restoring global eco-balance 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 completely redesigned our Solutions that Create Solutions page to explain in much more detail how a self-replicating model like One Community has the potential to create a completely sustainable planet and positively impact every living person and thing within 30 years. You can see this redesign here:
We also created this new manual submission page for our partner interest form to help anyone who has problems with our digital submission page:
And we finished the first 50% of the webpage design for the Science for Sustainable Development chapter of our People’s Agenda 21 website that is a rewrite of Agenda 21. This rewrite removes government involvement and instead focuses on sharing open source resources to promote and facilitate the individual and community-based actions that can be taken to help create a more sustainable world for everyone.
Last but not least, we were happy to feature the beautiful work of Paige Allison Donatelli (Graphic Designer and Owner Operator of Namaste Living in a Material World) as our new social media image for our Open Source page.
