We are so blessed to have many colleges around the country come to learn and volunteer at 180.  Our Alternative Break program is a dynamic week of projects, team-building and relationship-building for college students looking for a life changing experience. You to learn what it takes to produce organic food, (from the ground up) and how that impacts those who have cancer or other serious disease in our community.  

If your college would like to volunteer, or have an Alternative Spring/Summer/Fall/Winter Break at the farm, please email Nicole (nicole@180farm.org) for more information or to set a date.

Accommodations:  We have been extremely blessed to have local hotels donate rooms for the visiting students, within a 10 mile radius from the farm.  Once we have agreed on a date for your school, we will reach out to one of our hotel partners for rooms.  We like to keep our AB groups to a maximum of 12, so you will typically be 4 to a room
