Restoring sustainable balance and regenerating our planet is possible if enough people participate. Increasing participation can be attained by making sustainability easy enough, affordable enough, and attractive enough to spread on it’s own. This is what One Community is doing:

One Community is restoring sustainable 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 transferred the final 25% of the written content for the Humility Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Humility” is now 100% completed on our website.
Behind the scenes, we wrote the final 25% of the written part of the Information Lesson Plan.
We also completed the second 25% of the mindmap for the Humility Lesson Plan, bringing it to 50% complete, which you see here:
One Community is restoring sustainable 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:
As part of the development of our Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan, which features contributions from Naturopathic Doctor Matt Marturano (creator of the COHERENT model for comprehensive digestive health), this week the core team compiled the sweet potato recipes, as you can see here. We will add them to the updated recipe strategy page.
One Community is restoring sustainable 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 put another 10 hours into the behind-the-scenes revision for the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the crowdfunding campaign we are developing. This week’s focus was on the continued intensive read and dissecting of Section 10 Construction of Stem Wall and Dome. We cross referenced facts and confirmed the accuracy of content, grammar, sentence structure, continuity, and overall presentation. We’d say we are now 88% complete with this total update and rewrite behind the scenes.
Sal Rubio (Industrial Designer) also continued working on creating professional do-it-yourself Earthbag Village Murphy Bed furniture assembly instructions. What you see here is week 7 of this process and Sal’s 3rd version of exploring instructions for cutting the proper pieces, plus our notes for what will be version 4 of these instructions.
Brianna Johnson (Interior Designer), also continued evolving the renders for the Straw Bale Village (Pod 2). What you see here is the first render for the central 2nd floor patio area looking down.
Dean Scholz, Architectural Designer, further developed what’s necessary for us to create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 25 of his work that continued with exploration of a new and more accurate roof design as seen here.
Guy Grossfeld (Graphic Designer) also continued with his 3rd week of photoshop work on the renders for the Shipping Container Village (Pod 5). Here you see final versions of a rental room looking in:
….the open area behind the dining hall looking Northwest:
….and one of the circulation areas:
Bupesh Seethala (Interior Designer) also transformed the initial render into an updated render for the Recycled Materials Village (Pod 6) Art room.
Zachary Melin (Graphic Designer) also continued updating the Tree House Village (Pod 7) book created by last year’s intern Team. What you see here are updated information and storyboard pages covering the tourism and event hosting with storyboard artwork compliments of Ana Carolina Salomao Faria (Industrial Design and Service Design Student).
One Community is restoring sustainable 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:
Dipti Dhondarkar (Electrical Engineer) also took the team’s feedback from last week and started creating this more detailed spreadsheet for the lighting zones, lumens, and number of lamps needed.
One Community is restoring sustainable 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 clarified colors and designs for the new 7 sustainable villages icons and then created our first color template that will be used for all the webpages, informational materials, assembly instructions, interior design, and more.
