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 learning 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 diseases in our community.
What do you typically do while on Alternative Break at the farm?
What do you need to bring? Weather appropriate clothing (that you don't mind getting dirty). outdoor work shoes (waterproof is always good), gloves, a great attitude, suntan lotion, baseball cap or beanie to protect from sun and wind, rain coat, and all personal overnight gear.
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.
**Other accommodations may be made in the event we can't get rooms for your stay.
