Imagine a world of people consciously and conscientiously stewarding their environments for the The Highest Good of all people and life on it. One Community is supporting sustainable citizenship like this through open source and free-shared DIY teacher/demonstration hubs that develop, build and share what is needed to make this possible. This includes sustainable approaches to food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more.

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 7th, 2019 edition (#315) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:

One Community is supporting sustainable citizenship 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 finished developing the best, safest, and most sustainable paints, primers, stains, and sealers page. This included creating all the sections shown here, final proofreading and edits, sharing it through all our social media networks, and adding it to our open source annual social media strategy.
Dan Alleck (Designer and Illustrator) completed his 42nd week helping with Earthbag Village render additions. This week he finished work on this view of an Earthbag Village 6-dome cluster by fixing final render errors and replacing all the bushes.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 45th week leading the development of the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was drawing parts to match all the pre-made components needing to be purchased and starting to outline the pages that will describe them in all the different languages. You can see some of this work-in-progress here.
Hemanth Kotaru (Structural Engineer) completed his 32nd week helping with the structural engineering research and calculations for the Earthbag Village (Pod 1). This week he wrote version 1 of the tutorial for the nail and rebar selection and spacing tool he developed. You can see some of this work-in-progress here.
And Elizabeth Kahn (Environmental Consultant) completed her 12th week as a researcher with our team. This week she finished final formatting and organization for the faucets section of the upcoming most sustainable faucet options page and researched the Altered water-saving nozzle addition. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is supporting sustainable citizenship 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, the core team continued the process of 3D modeling the new Duplicable City Center interior design details for the library. This week we researched fire code requirements for the hallways, changed the color of the beanbags and moved them to the corners, and set up table lights, pendent lights, and some of the recessed ceiling lights.
The core team also continued adding content to the City Center open source HVAC design tutorial. This week we finished the first half of the “Maximizing LEED Points In The City Center Point-by-point” section by finishing the research and creating all the content shown here.

Tanya Griffin, Aubryanne Boyle, and Allie Marsh (Interior Designers from Lotus Designs) completed their 15th week helping with the Duplicable City Center interior design details. This week’s focus was more product research, 3D modeling, and adding details to the Social Dome storyboards you see here.
James Herrigel (Student Researcher) also completed his 17th week researching sustainable materials. This week’s focus was researching and writing up the entire resources component, shown here, for the Most Sustainable Adhesives page.
Sneha Dongre (Structural Engineer) also continued with her 8th week helping with the Duplicable City Center structural details. This week’s focus was fixing an issue with floor heights and initial importing to ETABs so we can start running engineering calculations.
One Community is supporting sustainable citizenship 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 continued writing the behind-the-scenes narrative and detailed food rollout plan. We continued researching and revising our goat care and fencing details, and finished adding narratives to the Google Doc regarding equipment and accessories for pens and feeding. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
The core team also continued research and 3D design of the chicken coops needed for 100 chicks. This week we placed the roof, designed the nesting boxes, and added the chicken ramp and the missing outside walls. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
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. We’ll report on the final two elements to be finished as we develop them.
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:
One Community is supporting sustainable citizenship 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:
