One Community is creating the solution for everything. We define this as a sustainable civilization that completely meets the needs of all people and life on this planet while regeneratively and proactively giving more than it takes. We are a Highest Good of All organization creating the open source and free-shared blueprints to define and demonstrate a civilization like this by building the starting point as One Community.
One Community will be the model to spread this Highest Good civilization concept as the first of many self-sufficient and self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities purposed to help teach and share the key foundations of what is needed to simultaneously and comprehensively address all the issues our species is currently struggling with. Our comprehensive sustainability approach is doing this by providing duplicable, ethical, and Highest Good approaches to food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit business design, social architecture and fulfilled living, stewardship practices, and more. This is our weekly progress update (#33) covering our team‘s accomplishments for the week of October 7, 2013.

We possess the ultimate solution for everything in life. As part of One Community’s four-phase strategy and global change methodology, our initial food infrastructure will be open source project-launch blueprinting the creation of our food forest and 6 structures that will represent 3 different aquapini and walipini designs.
These 6 structures will be a part of our botanical garden model and will produce a diversity of delicious and nutritious food far beyond anything found in a typical grocery store. The purpose of demonstrating and open source sharing this is to engage the mainstream public in sustainable food practices by teaching people how to affordably and easily exceed the quality and diversity of anything they can purchase in the grocery store while simultaneously promoting and preserving biodiversity.
Here is just one newly added example from Zenapini 1:
Casimiroa pringlei is a shrubby drought deciduous species to 6 feet in the Rutaceae native to high elevation forests of Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This rare species differs from the white sapote in its smaller shrubby habit and in being much more cold hardy (to 4F). It bears an edible loquat sized fruit with a subacid flavor. The two species appear to be graft compatible, and may hybridize. The species is threatened with habitat loss.
We will grow pringle’s sapote in the planting bed south of chucte #5Z1.
We will receive pringle’s sapote as seed. The seeds have short viability and should be planted immediately. Seedlings should be potted on until they reach 1 gal size before planting out.
This week we finished 1/3rd of the detailed Zen Aquapini plant entries.
Philip Gill (Interior and Furniture Designer and Owner of Philip Gill Design) is continuing designs for the interiors of the earthbag village homes. Here’s a front and back view of a Murphy Bed design that folds up to allow for a fold-down desk. Behind the bed are his and hers closet and changing areas. Next we’ll add a ladder for access to an overhead loft area with room enough for another bed, storage, etc.
Devin Porter (3D Graphics Design Specialist) has completed addition of all the domes except 4 for the central ring of the earthbag village. He has also added venting, water catchment canals, the windows and doors for vermiculture toilets and communal shower domes, and doors for access to the storage areas near the south entrance of the Tropical Atrium. Here’s the most recent 3D export:
The SEGO Center Duplicable City Hub now has railings for all of the internal areas and we are beginning the addition of the staircases.
This last week Karl Harris (Architect Drafter, Designer, and founder of Harris Design & Technology Services) finished the 3D details of the SEGO Center group-kitchen canning and preserving area and shared walk-in refrigerator and freezer. This area features tons of storage and shelving, an internal food preparation area with reach-through window for maximum refrigeration conservation during high-volume food production, heavy insulated door for side access and easy addition of fresh produces from the receiving area, sliding refrigeration door for easy access from the main cooking area, freezer access from inside the refrigerator for maximum energy efficiency, and a large canning/preserving/fresh food processing area closest to the North entry.

Here’s the beginning of the Education for Life subject template that will work in concert with the weekly theme mind maps.
One Community is creating a place to grow together and change the world together. Positioned as the solution for everything, we are creating a space that helps each other live in integrity with each other and the planet as we strive to be the greatest versions of ourselves. We do this by harmoniously respecting each other, nature, and the rest of our one shared planet.
Our goal is to demonstrate what we feel is the most sustainable, healthy, and fun environment we can create. A place based on compassion, kindness, and collaboration. This replicable community will serve as an example for what is possible.
Throughout our design process we are open sourcing and free-sharing everything needed for construction and replication. This includes what we call “Highest Good” approaches to food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economics design, social architecture, fulfilled living, stewardship practices and more. We believe that we are the solution for everything, and we are creating these resources for implementation as individual components or complete developments called teacher/demonstration hubs. These hubs will help launch additional hubs as awareness and knowledge grow.
The One Community self-replicating model is capable of creating a sustainable planet and creating the solution for everything within 30 years. We will achieve this by establishing successful teacher/demonstration hubs on every continent. Villages include designs appropriate for each of the five main types of climates. They also include options for even the most challenged economies. These hubs will collaborate with one another, share ideas, resources, and work together as a network to heal the planet. They will also transform the global lifestyle to a more enjoyable, fulfilling, healthy, and sustainable one—the very epitome of the solution for everything.
The specifics of how One Community is accomplishing this can be found on the One Community Solution Model to Create Solution-creating Models Page. Research supporting and showing the benefits of a model like this can be found on our Research and Resources Articles Archive.
Even if we don’t achieve our ultimate goal of global transformation, a self-replicating teacher/demonstration model like this will take a relatively short period of time to positively affect millions while inspiring millions more. For One Community residents (the Pioneer Team), the idea of creating and sharing the social and recreational experience with visitors is also fun, exciting, fulfilling, and an additional reason why we are creating this and creating the solution for everything.
One Community’s four-phase strategy for the creation of solution models that create solution creating models uses open source blueprints for duplication that simultaneously address all aspects of the human experience (food, energy, housing, education, social inequality and injustice, fulfilled living, etc.). In essence, this approach embodies the solution for everything. We see these areas as interdependent and requiring a comprehensive solution if humanity is to move ecologically, socially, economically, and permanently towards a truly sustainable future for everyone.
Our open source model and blueprints engage and inspire people while simultaneously making sustainable living more affordable and easy to replicate. We are crafting the solution for everything. By free-sharing the step-by-step plans people need for duplication, inviting people to participate, and demonstrating sustainable teacher/demonstration hubs as a more desirable way of living, the model will predictably expand on its own.
It is this approach we see uniting and creating the solution for everything, leading to a new Golden Age for humanity. While we understand that not everyone believes this is even possible, we are nonetheless bringing together all those that do see this as possible as the non-profit think tank of forward-thinking individuals willing to design, build, and open source project-launch blueprint and free-share it for The Highest Good of All.
The more people that are inspired and desiring for themselves what it is that One Community is creating— the solution for everything— the more demand there will be for spreading the One Community model. We are creating the solution for everything. This leads to the directing of financial resources and resourceful people where we believe they are needed most: the establishment of additional sustainable communities around the world. We also feel this duplication will specifically happen quickly internationally due to the affordability of overseas land, less restrictive building environments, and the spirit of adventure in many people who really desire to make a difference for those who need it most.
To meet the increasing demand for sustainability that we are contributing to, we are coordinating with manufacturers, education institutions, individuals, and vendors. Integral to this model is our commitment to spearheading the solution for everything. Its purpose is to facilitate more engagement of the sustainability industry, produce the absolute best possible consumer value, and the most convenient delivery of goods and methodologies for building sustainable living communities and sustainable living components.
To address the growing call for sustainability to which we are actively contributing, we’re collaborating with manufacturers, educational institutions, individuals, and vendors. Integral to this model is our commitment to spearheading the solution for everything. Our aim is to foster greater involvement in the sustainability sector, provide unparalleled consumer value, and ensure the seamless delivery of goods and methodologies for constructing sustainable living communities and components.
We are crafting the solution for everything. This means we not only provide education and increase needed sustainability resources, we also address the underlying roadblocks to a sustainable planet by decreasing the cost and simultaneously increasing the demand and generating financial support for global sustainability, philanthropy, and humanitarian movements and organizations.
As demand increases, so too will the ways to participate. Right now people are participating as consultants or partners donating time to our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and others are more involved as Pioneers of the core team that will be moving to the property. We also have options for people to just follow our progress or participate through internet contribution.
We are crafting the ultimate solution for everything. One Community is building solution-creating models designed to create additional solution-creating models to specifically facilitate exponential and sustainable global teacher/demonstration village growth. The following four phases of the strategy we are applying are designed to support each other and accelerate the process globally:
Phase I: Demonstrating a Better Way
We are designing One Community to demonstrate an experience of living that we believe most people will consider to be better because it will be more enjoyable and fulfilling. We also think most people will consider it better because it is made possible specifically through a foundation of sustainable sustainability and a philosophy that is for The Highest Good of All.
Phase II: Open Source Project-Launch Blueprinting
Everything we do we are open source project-launch blueprinting and free-sharing to make it as easy and affordable as possible to duplicate, adapt, and evolve in the manner that suits each individual and/or group’s needs. Free-sharing information like this is our aggressive-exposure engine and an aspect of One Community that will accelerate indefinitely as we continue to build our team, move onto the property, and continuously build and evolve everything that is One Community.
Phase III: Inviting the World to Participate
Everything we are open source project-launch blueprinting is designed to invite the world to participate by duplicating it as either individual components or complete teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities that will be able to be built almost anywhere in the world. Additionally, people can join One Community as members, consultants and/or partners, or use the suggestions links on our open source project-launch blueprinting hubs to help with the design, implementation, and evolution process. Scholarships, weekend learning and work crews, and tourism will be foundations of One Community once we have sufficient infrastructure in place to support these options.
Phase IV: Universal Appeal and Global Expansion
As One Community continues evolving and establishing ourselves as pioneers in creating the solution for everything, everything we create and promote will serve as the engine to inspire people to align with the concept of open source and sustainable living for The Highest Good of All. We are doing this to create mainstream appeal and our path to achieving this appeal is demonstrating a happier, more affordable, and ecologically friendly model of living that can be built anywhere in the world.
Open source project-launch blueprinting it all is how we believe the model will spread and, possibly most importantly, that it will predictably spread even faster in the areas where it is needed most because building restrictions, the cost of land, and materials costs are in most cases lower in these areas.
