Morningstar Newsletter Home Page and History

 Welcome, ranchers, grads, alums and fellow travelers!
 Put up your feet and hang awhile!
Thanks also to Eric Noble's San Francisco Diggers website who created space for several newsletters and the "Home Free Home" book (See below). I've linked this page to his sites when you click on the appropriate title and many thanks for the technical help from David Hatch.
We are always searching for photos of both ranches, so please let me know if you have any in your memorabilia!
Thanks to Elph and those responsible for the Intentional Community website for hosting this website for the past five years. The Most Newsletter has now moved to (which is hosted by Tomas who is a Morningstar alumni).

 MOSTposts functions basically as a list for folks who lived on two communal ranches, Morningstar and Wheeler's, and for this reason we keep it as a moderated list.

Feedback, comments, photos and queries can also be sent to: 2006morningstar at laurelrose dot com and the information will be sent to Yahoo Groups MOST POSTS Newsletter:

It was a collaborative effort, and evokes the warmth and love of the community very well. Enjoy!
