I was given the opportunity to work at Prairie Loft at the beginning of the summer, and it’s been such a rewarding experience. I’ve been able to work at camps educating children about agriculture and wildlife, while also giving them room to explore the outdoors themselves. The staff here is comprised of hardworking individuals who make me forget I’m even working. I’m so glad I was given the opportunity to work at such a great place with such amazing people.
An incredible organization that not only teaches about land, water, plants and animals.....it shows young and old alike how to BE outdoors away from technology. Such a joy-filled place.
I've attended many events at Prairie Loft with my most recent being Grandparent's Camp! Amy and the staff were great in making our adventure fun while learning about the outdoors, soy beans, birds, bugs, plants and so many other things! It is very family friendly and Adams County and Hastings are blessed to have a venue that teaches farm to table to all ages! Way to go Prairie Loft!!
My family has been attending every possible event here since my oldest was born. This summer she had the most amazing birthday party out there. We are so blessed to have this educational, unique place and all of the events that are carefully planned year round!
With a staff of only 1.5 FTE, Prairie Loft reaches thousands of children and adults every year through programming about agriculture and outdoor experiences. By keeping participation costs at a minimal level, or even zero, they can offer such programming to everyone in the community. Please check their website, www.prairieloft.org, for more information about how to participate.
Prairie Loft Center has become a vital part of the city of Hastings and surrounding areas. Their emphasis on outdoor and agricultural education is teaching young people a greater appreciation of the outdoors and the ways our food is grown. Field trips, special classes, all-community free activities, a music festival, and a community garden all enhance the experience of living in an agricultural area, even for those who don't live on the surrounding farms.
