Sustainably addressing humanity’s foundations is essential if a sustainable world is to be created. To do this, a holistic solution-set needs to be created that will combine physical sustainability (food, energy, and housing) and emotional sustainability (fulfilled living, education, sustainable economics and earth stewardship) to provide a better way of life that people can replicate and share. We call this living and creating for The Highest Good of All:

One Community is sustainably addressing humanity’s foundations 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 last week the core team transferred the first 50% of the written content for the Energy Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Energy” is now 50% complete on our website.
We additionally completed and added the final 50% of the mindmap for the Emotional States Lesson Plan to the webpage. You can see that mindmap here:
Behind the scenes, we also wrote the first 1/3 of the Sustainability Lesson Plan, bringing the behind-the-scenes written part for that to about 35% complete:
One Community is sustainably addressing humanity’s foundations 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 last week the core team completed an additional 10% on the organizing and editing of a more streamlined version of our Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan page and added some of the calculations that Dr. Matt Marturano provided on how much food we will need. We are now approximately 20% complete with the behind-the-scenes remodeling of that page.
We also added three additional recipes from Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your BQ?) to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan – These recipes are: Pear Crumble, Pasta Marinara, and Panzanella:
One Community is sustainably addressing humanity’s foundations 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 working on the behind-the-scenes revision for the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This week included the new french drain drawings and revisions you see here, working out new specifics for the corbeling as you see here, and more insulation research, changes to the flashing, and other smaller details. We’d say this brings us to 48% complete with this total rewrite and update.
We also continued posting and formatting the website content for the dome home window and door framing tutorial for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. What you see here is another 20% of this tutorial update bringing us to 75% done with this new page creation.
Additionally, we added lofts into the latest revision of the 3-dome cluster design for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. You can see those here:
And last but not least, we began updating the Cob Village page with the work of the summer Intern Team. The work we did included a new header, updated purpose of this village, and other details.
One Community is sustainably addressing humanity’s foundations 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 focused on the shelving specifics you see here for the food serving areas, and we’d say we are now 70% done with the complete 3-D update.
Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer), continued developing and evolving the Pipe Furniture designs. What you see here are the 7th generation concept designs for the chairs for the Duplicable City Center library. These chairs will be able to be converted into tables and are designed to be built out of PVC or recycled plumbing piping for the framing and recycled wood for the seat and back.
Behind the scenes Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant) and Lucas Tsutsui da Silva (4th-year Computer Engineering Student), continued work on the Control Systems design. What you see here is Mike’s touchscreen software development using his Tank Farm as a testbed for the Universal Windows development application running on the open source Windows Core.
These pictures are from our GoogleHangout where Mike is drawing details to help Lucas with the specifics of the control board design you see in the background:
One Community is sustainably addressing humanity’s foundations 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:
