Global sustainable eco-community replication will happen the moment it is demonstrated as easy enough, affordable enough, and attractive enough to gain mainstream support. Open source solutions combining sustainable models for food, energy, and housing that allow for new models of fulfilled living, education, sustainable economics and earth stewardship could be the key. Putting these together as self-replicating teacher/demonstration hubs is what One Community calls living and creating 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 September 20th, 2015 edition (#130) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’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 @1:56
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:14
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:09
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @5:41
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @6:37
One Community is facilitating sustainable eco-community replication 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 wrote the final 25% of the Recreation and Relaxation Lesson Plan behind the scenes, bringing the written portions to 100% complete.
And finally, we completed and added an additional 25% of the mindmap for the Social Relationships Lesson Plan to the webpage, bringing that to 75% complete. You can see that mindmap here:
One Community is facilitating sustainable eco-community replication 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 added three new delicious recipes from Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your BQ?) to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan – These recipes are: Banana Breakfast Muffins, Asian Style Salad with Tamarind Dressing, and Spaghetti Pie:
One Community is facilitating sustainable eco-community replication 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 what we hope will be the final revision of the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This week included adding geotextile fabric and perforated corrugated pipe descriptions, re-calculating lengths of geotextile and polyethylene, altering the water collection gutter with additional stucco and dropping the polyethylene barrier down one more bag on the interior wall, plus rewriting the sequence of steps for foundation and stem buttress and earthbag walls. We’d say we’re now 25% complete with this behind-the-scenes revision.
We also updated the earthbag village eco-toilet and shower page with the 3-D interactives from Gilberto Martini de Oliveira (3D Animation Designer) and other edits… all part of a much larger update that we’d say we’re now about 15% done with.
And we continued working on the Straw Bale Village (Pod 2) presentation pages adding in picture labels, making format changes and updating the text. We’d say we’re now about 20% done with this layout.
One Community is facilitating sustainable eco-community replication 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 updating the Sketchup 3-D for the Duplicable City Center. This week we worked on the bathrooms next to the elevator, redid the stairs and rails for the elevator area, and made corrections to the 1st and 4th floor structure around the stairs area. We’d say we’re now 50% complete with the total 3-D update.
We also worked behind the scenes with Diogo Rozada (Civil Engineering Student specializing in Hydraulics) to complete a final review and series of edits to the Duplicable City Center sprinkler and emergency fire system designs and tutorial. The work you see here is from Diogo and the rest of the Hydraulics Intern Team as it is being finalized in preparation for adding it to the website.
One Community is facilitating sustainable eco-community replication 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 began updating all our help wanted pages and our online marketing campaigns. The initial focus has been for web and graphic design help and we finished updating all our ads for Graphic Designers and 50% of redesigning the Seeking Graphic Designers Page that you can see here. What’s new with these page updates is the addition of complete and detailed job descriptions that include work examples.
