Strategic sustainable lifestyle creation makes sense to include both physical sustainability (food, energy, housing, etc.) and emotional sustainability (education, economics, recreation, etc.). Combining and open source and free-sharing these as a complete model can make this lifestyle an accessible reality for everyone. One Community is doing this as a path to global transformation 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 April 5th, 2015 edition (#109) 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 @2:00
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:50
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @5:07

One Community is supporting a systemic approach to total sustainability 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:
We also added the final 35% of the indigo section and 30% of the violet section to the Technology and Innovation Molecule webpage, which you can see here. Violet includes informational overviews and links that provide details about companies and brands that have had the greatest impacts on humanity in regards to technology and innovation.
Paige Allison Donatelli (Graphic Designer and Owner Operator of Namaste Living in a Material World) finished 25% of the image creation for the Open Source lesson mindmap. When complete on the site, this lesson plan will teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment using the central Open Source Sharing theme:
One Community is supporting a systemic approach to total sustainability 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:
And we did this for our food forest shrub plantings hub too:
We also researched and added the final major component to the open source lettuce hub: RECIPES! You can see these new additions here:
We also did this for the open source squash hub. These first recipe lists will grow as our food experts continue the process of designing the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan for remote village construction:
One Community is supporting a systemic approach to total sustainability 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 progress on the assembly specifics for the Open Source Murphy bed furniture. This work is happening behind the scenes and what you see here will be part of the Earthbag Village and the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This week we finished assembly instructions for the upper, middle, and lower drawers of the nightstands. What you see here is all this behind-the-scenes work-in-progress and we estimate we are now 65% complete with what is needed for the website.
Also, behind the scenes, we finished another 20% of the earthdome loft construction tutorial specifics. This work included inserting new steps and rearranging the order, adding more construction details, reviewing and altering the hatch design, and updating the video list & sequence. We’re now 55% complete with this behind-the-scenes work:
Sheng Xu (Mechanical Design Engineer) also finished his second round of SolidWorks design specifics for the 3-dome cluster of the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. What you see is the addition of accurate artistic elements that will be around the doors and windows, as well as smoothing of all the corners:
And, last but not least, the core team added the amazing AutoCAD and design work of Dave Walen (Architectural Drafter & Designer and owner of Dave Philip Walen Design) to the Straw Bale Village (Pod 2) open source hub. You can see these new additions here and read all about this village on the webpage:
One Community is supporting a systemic approach to total sustainability 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 Robert Seton (Solar Design Engineer and Owner of Solar Hybrid Design) produced these baseline production calculations, battery specifics calculations, and initial electric load comparisons for the phase I solar infrastructure, bringing us one huge step closer to what we need to finalize these specifics on the site.
One Community is supporting a systemic approach to total sustainability 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 finished rebuilding all the menus and finished the “Radioactive Wastes” chapter rewrite on the People’s Agenda 21 site. This new page offers education and resources for any individual or local-level community interested in being proactive about addressing radioactive waste challenges:
The core team also created the beginnings of this new legal page purposed to open source share the legal processes and documents required for our non-profit and for-profit entities:
And, thanks to the amazing help of Yusuf Sulayman (Lawyer and member of the Nigerian Bar Association), we were able to finish weeks of edits and updates to our non-profit bylaws that can now be viewed and downloaded from the new legal page:
