For locally owned businesses of the entire Morongo Basin AKA Joshua Tree Gateway to inform the public about local products, services and events. Creating a strong and resilient local economy begins by patronizing local businesses.
The Joshua Tree Gateway Communities, on the Northern border of Joshua Tree National Park in California, consist of Morongo Valley, the Town of Yucca Valley, the Village of Joshua Tree, the City of Twentynine Palms, Pioneertown, Wonder Valley, Landers, Homestead Valley, Yucca Mesa, Flamingo Heights and Johnson Valley.
As often as possible there will be postings of interviews with local business owners to let the community know who they are, what they offer and why they choose to be here.
Who are you?
What is your business? Describe products and/or services.
Where is it located?
When are you open/doing business?
Why did you choose to live here?
Why did you start your business here?
How long have you been in business?
Anything else you want to share, fun stories, or?

Email your info and a photo or three of you at your business, doing your services and/or of your business to be included with the story.
