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. Here is our weekly progress update (#65) covering our development and accomplishments for the week of May 19th, 2014:
Here is the bullet-point list of this last week’s design and progress discussed in detail in the video above:
ZERO-WASTE REGENERATIVE COMMUNITY BUILDING INTRO @1:00
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION @1:44
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:02
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:25
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @5:19
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @6:33
ZERO-WASTE REGENERATIVE COMMUNITY BUILDING SUMMARY: @7:11

We are zero-waste regenerative community building 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 finished the indigo ring and all of the linguistics section for the English Subject molecule:
We also finished creation of our free online education resource guide webpage covering all the best free online education resources we’ve found
We are zero-waste regenerative community building 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 finished adding sitting areas, trees, and other external accents to the 3-D aquapini and walipini footprint. Here’s this work completed before we make final renders:
We also finished the professional planting plans for the 18 Hoop-houses we’ll be starting with. Here’s all of them in one image and you can click the image to be taken to the large-scale gardening page for individual images you can enlarge:
On top of this, we finished adding the diversity details to the organic corn section of the large-scale gardening page that now offers 36 different varieties of corn from around the world, 8 beautifully featured, and complete sourcing details for all of them:
We are zero-waste regenerative community building 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 began putting together the earthbag home heating and cooling page. Thus far we’re about 15% done and the page in progress looks like this:
We are zero-waste regenerative community building through a Duplicable and Sustainable City Center that is LEED Platinum certified/Sustainable, can feed 200 people at a time, can provide laundry for over 300 people, beautiful, spacious, saves resources, saves money, and saves space:
This last week James Nance (Mechanical Engineer and Project Manager with P2S Engineering) working in conjunction with the core team working on the earthbag village, expanded the water heater research and evaluation we’d planned for the Duplicable City Center. Here are cut sheets for all the electric water heater options of the Duplicable City Center:
Da Ku (Mechanical Engineer) finished the natural pool transition-point door engineering calculations needed for the hinges. Here is his process:
Da Ku’s question: Since the plexiglass is heavier than an ordinary wood door, is a normal hinge for the door strong enough for our transition door ?
First, Da Ku tried to calculate the stress of the hinge of an ordinary wood door (his bedroom door). He measured the dimensions of the hinge and the door, and modeled it in ANSYS. The result was 1.7e8 Pa for maximum Von-Mises stress, around the contact position with the hinge axis.
Then, he input the model of the transition door (2 inch thick), which is more than twice the weight of the bedroom door (taken into account the buoyancy force). In this case the stress is of course much bigger, near the yielding strength of steel. So Da Ku added 2 more hinges in addition to the original 2 hinges. As a result it gives 1.2e8 Pa for maximum Von-Mises stress, less than the bedroom door hinge.
His conclusion is that we just need to use 2 more hinges and we will be fine.
Da Ku also did some online research into hinges and rust and saw that stainless steel might be good for our case, since some stainless steel can stay rust-free even in water. His next step here will be to ask someone who sells stainless hinges next time he goes to home Depot or Lowe’s.
Also, Karl Harris finished correcting the windows for the North-view elevation drawings:
We are zero-waste regenerative community building 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 completely updated the details of all our consensus pages including the consensus as a core value page, consensus for groups of 200+ page, details on consensus training, and where we are now in our consensus process page. Here’s a collage of these pages that you can click to be taken to the main page we’d recommend for anyone starting on their journey to understanding the consensus process:
