Welcome to

Prairie Oaks Institute!

An intersection of Sustainability, Education, and Renewal


We welcome people to book a stay at the farm or host their next event here as well as stopping by to walk our trail system and take in the beautiful scenery.

We team up with organizations and educators to host seminars, workshops, or classes. Check out our events page for upcoming opportunities.

Want to help Prairie Oaks continue to offer workshops, expand our trails system, and host more on-campus projects? Donations are a wonderful gift that helps us to continue our vision to be catalysts of rejuvenation for people and the planet.
