Let’s build sustainable and self-sufficient teacher/demonstration hubs as a path to having more fun. Within these environments people can have more social and recreational things to do, all within walking distance, and work less and have more time to do these things. One Community is creating the open source plans for this social architecture and fulfilled living model as well as the food, energy, housing, education, and economic structures that will make it possible.

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 22nd, 2019 edition (#339) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:
One Community is open sourcing teacher demonstration hubs as a path to having more fun. They include 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 Brianna Olsen (Sustainability Researcher) also completed her 13th week as a member of the team. This week she finished final edits and additions to the written content for the most sustainable faucet options updates and began research to double check the most current options for the sustainable hand dryer options page.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) completed his 67th week developing the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was integrating the new piece names for all the pages in the wall and storage sections, converting piece names in the old parts map, rearranging the parts map, and another round of going through each page making sure that the new numbers and layout were consistent.
And Hemanth Kotaru (Structural Engineer) completed his 34th week helping with the structural engineering research and calculations for the Earthbag Village. This week he began writing the final summary of findings and engineering design tutorial. You can see this behind-the-scenes work here.
One Community is open sourcing teacher demonstration hubs as a path to having more fun. They include 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 finished creating the Most Sustainable Adhesives page. This included creating the Bostik and 3M sections, final proofreading and editing, and adding links to this page from other relevant pages. You can see some of this work here.
Ron Huang (Mechanical Engineer) continued with his 20th week working on the Energy Modeling for our LEED Platinum certification and City Center open source HVAC design tutorial. This week’s focus was fine tuning the latest revision of the HVAC and Hydronic System by experimenting with the plant temperature schedule and adjusting it for seasonal changes. You can see some of this work here.
Sneha Dongre (Structural Engineer) also continued with her 25th week helping with the Duplicable City Center structural details. This week she continued creating floor and roof poly-areas in SAP 2000. You can see some of this work here.

One Community is open sourcing teacher demonstration hubs as a path to having more fun. They include 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:
The core team also continued research and 3D design of the rabbit hutches. This week we added manure collection boards, designed a movable-pyramid rabbit hutch-tractor, and designed the rabbit hutch with extended movable cage addition shown here.
And the core team also continued developing the behind-the-scenes open source permaculture design content. This week we added to the Scale of Permanence concept, began composing the Sector Analysis details, completed research for the sun sector section, and continued developing the sections covering fences, soil conditions, planting, animals and economy. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
One Community is open sourcing teacher demonstration hubs as a path to having more fun. They include 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. 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 open sourcing teacher demonstration hubs as a path to having more fun. They include 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:
