Sustainability role modeling is one of the goals of One Community’s open source and free-sharing process that includes sustainable approaches to food, energy, and housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, and global stewardship practices. We are doing this to create a global collaboration of teacher/demonstration hubs working together for what we call 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 14th, 2019 edition (#316) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:

One Community is sustainability role modeling 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:
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued working on the Earthbag Village (Pod 1). Here is weekly update #155 from Dean. This week’s focus, as shown in these images, was creating the housing domes to go with the bathroom dome in the 3 and 6-dome clusters.

Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also completed his 46th week leading the development of the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was finishing the rest of the parts drawings to match all the pre-made components that will need to be purchased and finishing the related feature pages. You can see some of this work here.
And Elizabeth Kahn (Environmental Consultant) completed her 13th week as a researcher with our team. This week she finished final formatting and organization for faucet attachments section of the upcoming most sustainable faucet options page and also formatted the Altered water-saving nozzle addition. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is sustainability role modeling 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 updated the textures for the picture frames, bookshelves, benches, sofas, and most of the other furniture. We also updated the lights above the pictures, replaced two side tables with green beanbags, and moved tables and chairs to give room for two extra beanbags.
The core team also continued adding content to the City Center open source HVAC design tutorial. This week we finished the remaining research and content for the”Indoor Environmental Quality: Enhanced Indoor Air Quality Strategies” section of the “Maximizing LEED Points In The City Center Point-by-point” section and several related page updates and initial page setups.
Tanya Griffin, Aubryanne Boyle, and Allie Marsh (Interior Designers from Lotus Designs) completed their 16th week helping with the Duplicable City Center interior design details. This week’s focus was minor updates to the Social Dome storyboards and beginning work on the Dining Dome with window, railing, and staircase research.
James Herrigel (Student Researcher) also completed his 18th week researching sustainable materials for the Most Sustainable Adhesives page. This week’s focus was researching and adding specific products to the AFM Safecoat and Bona sections, as shown here.
One Community is sustainability role modeling 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. After reviewing and assessing more goat videos and articles, and a film on land restoration, we continued revising our goat care and fencing details. 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 researched trailer sizes for the chicken coop and added the trailer to sketchup. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
Guy Grossfeld (Graphic Designer) also completed his 14th week working on creating an open source icon and symbol set for our permaculture designs. Draft 1 is now complete and final edits are all that remains for these.
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 sustainability role modeling 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:
