A guide for new owners: New Owner Guide 4-5-17
Moonflower Co-op is owned by our members and run for our community. Moonflower has been an integral part of the Moab community and a Four Corners area landmark for decades.
As an Owner, you have the chance to take an active role in the Co-op. All of the Moonflower Community Cooperative Board of Directors are elected by Owners, and Special Committee members are also chosen from Co-op Ownership.
