Solving global hunger is possible and necessary. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that about 815 million people (10.7% of the global population) were suffering from chronic undernourishment in 20161. Two BILLION of us are estimated to be nutritionally deficient2. One Community sees a global network of teacher/demonstration hubs sharing needed resources, permaculture strategies, and living models for The Highest Good of All as a path to solving this. Watch the introduction of our latest progress updates video below to learn exactly how.

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 May 5th, 2019 edition (#319) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:

One Community is solving global hunger 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 week the core team continued building the most sustainable faucets and accessories page. This week we worked on the accessories section. We created all the imagery, did additional research and added a resources section, and completed two of the details for our #1 and #3 recommended choices. You can see this work-in-progress here.
Dan Alleck (Designer and Illustrator) completed his 44th week helping with Earthbag Village renders. This week he finished work on this view of the Earthbag Village looking Northwest, and a closer-up view looking in the same direction. Changes made include rendered plant, texture, and people fixes and additions.
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued working on the Earthbag Village (Pod 1). Here is weekly update #157 from Dean. This week he fixed the recycled-bottle windows over the door, custom built the light that is over them, and worked on the placement of the 4 domes.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 49th week leading the development of the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was redesigning the way the back storage and changing area will be assembled and then integrating the new changes into the complete assembly instructions for this area. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is solving global hunger 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, James Herrigel (Student Researcher) completed his 19th week researching sustainable materials for the Most Sustainable Adhesives page. This week’s focus was researching and adding specific products to the 3M products section, as shown here.
Anvita Kumari Pandey (Civil Engineer) continued helping with the Duplicable City Center Costs. This week she fixed all the imagery on kitchens spreadsheet and updated all the paint and stain details so they matched the separate research (done by James) to identify the most sustainable options available for these. You can see some of this work here.
Tanya Griffin, Aubryanne Boyle, and Allie Marsh (Interior Designers from Lotus Design Pros) completed their 19th week helping with the Duplicable City Center interior design details. This week’s focus was finishing the kitchen storyboards and initial research and development of the first bedroom storyboards.
Sneha Dongre (Structural Engineer) also continued with her 12th week helping with the Duplicable City Center structural details. This week’s focus was problem solving a way to import the floors from AutoCAD into SAP2000. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is solving global hunger 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 week the core team created version one of the complete “Open Source Library – Food Program” tasks, subtasks, and work packages. This outlines everything needed to build and replicate the One Community Highest Good food component.
One Community is building the foundations for how humanity creates a sustainable world 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 component of One Community is about 95% complete with only the Open Source School Licensing and Ultimate Classroom construction and assembly details remaining to be finished. With over 8 years of work invested in the process, the sections below are all complete until we move onto the property and continue the development and open sourcing process with teachers and students – a development process that is built directly into the structure of the education program and everything else we’re creating too:
This week the core team continued working on the structural redesign of the Ultimate Classroom. This week we redesigned and expanded the bathrooms and cubby storage spaces, added sliding glass door entry for the south side, and started testing the straw bale walls and windows. You can see some of this work in progress here.
One Community is solving global hunger 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 week the core team working with Brian Gilb (Project Management Professional – PMP) continued with our 4th week of updating our business plan and project management strategy. This week’s focus was rewriting the behind-the-scenes content for the Open Source Library Program Charter and Project Charters and beginning the process of Task, Subtask, and Work Package outlining for the complete food component of the Open Source Library. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
Emilio Nájera (Digital Marketer) also continued with his 29th week as part of the marketing team. This week’s focus was creating the ad group campaigns for the pages covering Food Forest Creation, Hoop Houses, Botanical Garden, Soil Amendment, Apiary, Goats, Rabbits, Chickens, Aquaculture, Wildlife Stewardship, and Aquapinis and Walipinis.
