One Community Sustainable Food Production Infrastructure One Community’s food infrastructure is just one component of our For The Highest Good of All approach to open source project-launch blueprinting strategy for self-replicating and self-sufficient teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world. Just as we will be showcasing a diversity of sustainable housing modes and alternative energy infrastructure, so too will we showcase a diversity of food production methodologies ranging from earth-regenerative permaculture farming to greenhouses to aquaponics farms. Even with traditional methods one person working full-time on food production can produce enough food to feed 30; with aquaponics that same person can produce enough food to feed 300. Our goal is to start building temporary greenhouses within the first week to supply food until our aquaponics farms and traditional growing methods are producing. Initially One Community will build three different sustainable food production models.
