COMING IN 2019, A BRAND-NEW SCHOOL ON 16 ACRES OF BEAUTIFUL LAND.
HELP US BUILD OUR SCHOOL
Prairie Green School has acquired 16 acres just west of Iowa City and will be expanding in 2019. During the 2017-2018 school year, we will launch a capital campaign to raise money to build our dream school.
Our vision for the 16-acre property integrates sustainable living and education. The schoolhouse is designed to be LEED certified with a two-story indoor atrium at its entrance. Learning spaces surround the atrium with a commercial kitchen and community space at the back. The view to the east leads students outside encouraging them to get lost in their imaginations while engaging in our Backyard Abundance designed play space. The schools farm manager lives on campus in a traditional style farm house. The house is completely off the grid utilizing wind and solar energy. There are chickens, turkeys and vegetable gardens surrounding the residence and schoolhouse, all of which will provide a healthy, sustainable lunch program for our students.
