Widespread and lasting sustainability implementation is needed if we are to create a sustainable world. Open source and free-sharing complete sustainable villages that include food, energy, housing, education, economics, and more is one way to facilitate this. We call this 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 March 6th, 2016 edition (#154) 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: @1:57
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:09
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:01
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @5:44
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @7:25
One Community is facilitating widespread and lasting sustainability implementation 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 25% of the written content for the Cooperation and Collaboration Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan is purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Cooperation and Collaboration” is now 100% completely on our website.
Behind the scenes, we wrote the second 25% of the written part of the Summer Lesson Plan.
We also completed the first 25% of the mindmap for the Work Lesson Plan, which you see here.
One Community is facilitating widespread and lasting sustainability implementation 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 added a new recipe for granola to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan page. This recipe was contributed by Naturopathic Doctor Matt Marturano (creator of the COHERENT model for comprehensive digestive health).
One Community is facilitating widespread and lasting sustainability implementation 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 put another 10 hours into the behind-the-scenes revision for the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the crowdfunding campaign we are developing. This week’s focus was finishing a huge update of the AutoCAD for the footer, foundation and flooring and updates to section 11 and 12 steps of the content rewrite, both of which can be seen in this image. We’d say we are now 71% complete with this total update and rewrite behind the scenes.
Working on the Tree House Village (Pod 7) with Jesika Rohrbach (Architectural Drafter, Designer, and 3-D Modeler), we also began exploring different designs for the patios and walkways for the different tree house recreation space layouts. You can see the different options Jesika created here.
Dean Scholz, Architectural Designer, further developed what’s necessary for us to create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 9.0 of this work that focused on more shade structure and cob sitting-space design details.
One Community is facilitating widespread and lasting sustainability implementation 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 working on the renders for the Duplicable City Center. What you see here are the second-floor Dining Dome renders with additional table lights, flooring, and progress on the shadows, windows and spotlights.
Bupesh Seethala (Interior Designer) continued to work with the Natural Pool and Spa details. Here (middle photo) is exploration of space needed for an equipment room and here (bottom photo) are the new specifics for a children’s wading area.
Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer), continued finalizing the Pipe Couch designs for the Duplicable City Center library. The renders you see here would be the 13th generation drawings showing lighter colors, a new table design and the addition of people using these different furniture designs for different purposes.
Behind the scenes Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant) and Lucas Tsutsui da Silva (4th-year Computer Engineering Student) continued development of the Control Systems main panel. What you see here is the latest design drawing and several screenshots from our discussion about different types of buttons to simplify and streamline the design.
In addition to this, Neha Verma (Construction Project Manager and Bachelor’s of Architecture) also created this additional access for a root cellar addition to the Duplicable City Center.
One Community is facilitating widespread and lasting sustainability implementation 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 continued working on a complete update of the One Community Business plan. What you see here is our 5th week of reformatting the plan on a GoogleDoc for easier collaboration and sharing. We’d say we are about 30% done with the complete rewrite and update.
We also began working with Mariam Sargsyan (Graphic Designer and Project Manager) to create a One Community Brand Book. Here is her initial outline and plan for the book design, along with some of our team’s notes to help her.
Jacky Tustain (Project Manager) also continued helping us convert the LEED Certification research done by Matheus Manfredini (Civil Engineering Student and Urban Design Coordinator) into a webpage. Here are the 5th round of pictures of this LEED Tutorial page developing on the site, continuing with formatting and content editing. We’d say we’re about 60% complete with this tutorial.
