We are bringing together the stewards of the earth to create a path to earth stewardship for anyone who wants it. Our strategy to accomplishing this is by operating as a for The Highest Good of All 501(c)3 non-profit organization and open source free-sharing everything needed so people interested in participating in stewardship and transformational global change can do so anywhere in the world. We are doing this in the form of seven comprehensive sustainability village models that provide what we feel most people will consider to be a more fulfilled way of living. The components of these models will be able to be duplicated modularly or as complete and self-propagating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities that are not only model solutions, but solution-creating models that provide even more research, blueprints, and necessary support for successively easier and more affordable and creative duplication everywhere. This is our weekly progress update (#15) covering our accomplishments for the week of June 3, 2013.

Here are the details of everything discussed in the video above…
Our large-scale food production aquapini planting map is complete! This map is for our open source aquapini and walipini planting and harvesting details page that is being built out with complete details of every plant that will be placed in the location of one of the numbers below. Coming this next week is the open source tutorial for gathering, formatting, and sharing each plant and tree detail.
In addition to the aquapini planting progress, we also continue to work on the Tropical Atrium planting and harvesting page. We are very close to finalizing the first 20 plants on that page in the format we will be using for all plants and trees in our Highest Good food sharing and open source project-launch blueprinting process. Here are the overview pages for both the aquapinis and the Tropical Atrium:
The earthbag village 3D continues to progress thanks to the help of John Bassist and Johnnie Torres and we now have our first 3-dome cluster complete with a patio, stairs, benches, etc. These domes are designed with 10 windows so we can delete all them down to two (currently planning one North and one South-facing for passive heating and cooling) as we position them in the correct place for the entire village. To facilitate moving the 3D work of this village and all other aspects forward even faster John also created an open facebook group specifically for 3D work and collaboration on One Community’s models and others. You can see our on-going work there:
One Community is purposed to design, build, and provide everything necessary to duplicate complete open source and free-shared self-sufficient nteacher/demonstration community, village, and city models. The earthbag village is the first one we will be building and this last week we also finished the final layout update necessary so we can take the above 3D work and apply it to the entire village. Here’s that update (forgot to mention this in the video blog) thanks to the amazing work of Doug Stenhouse (Architect and Water Color Artist):
Our water catchment open source portal is now updated with our complete water catchment projections for the Phase I build including:
Here’s an example of what is possible in less than 4 YEARS. Visit the updated page for a video and complete details.
We’ve finished 11 of 12 and only have one page remaining for the complete Curriculum for Life component of the open source and free-shared Education for Life program! This last week we finished adding images to the Community, Family, and Social Skills curriculum page as well as completing (content and images) the Freedom and Celebrating Different Perspectives curriculum page. We also built out the foundations of 6 more pages of the Evaluation and Evolution component. Here are the links:
Thanks to the on-going work of Karl Harris (Architect Drafter, Designer, and founder of Harris Design & Technology Services), the SEGO Center City Hub 3D continues to progress too. Here are the most recent screen shots from Karl:
Also, here’s some screenshots of the progress of Andrew Sadera (Architect Drafter and Designer) working on the cupola roof design:
Huge gratitude and thanks also go out to Meg West (Landscape Architect, Permaculturalist, and founder of Meg West Design) and Jennifer Engelmeier (Eco-pool and Spa Specialist and founder of www.LoveYourPool.com) for their on-going work, introducing One Community to Phil Charlton and Western States Design who are our newest partners helping us with our eco-laundry details, and for a fun and productive lunch last week!
