Stelle was founded in 1973 as a private community and has since evolved into a progressive homeowners association dedicated to holistic, sustainable living.
Today, Stelle’s one-hundred residents have manifested their shared values by incorporating renewable energy, permaculture food production, and inclusive community programming into their homes and lives.
