The Urban Adamah Urban Organic Farming Fellowship Now Accepting 2017 Applications

Connect to Something Bigger: Earth, Community, Social Justice, Jewish Spirituality

The Urban Adamah Fellowship, based in Berkeley, CA, is a three-month residential training program for young adults (ages 21–31) that combines urban organic farming, social justice training and progressive Jewish learning and living within the setting of an intentional community.

Through the operation of Urban Adamah’s two-acre organic farm, classes with local educators, and internships with neighboring community organizations, fellows gain significant skills, training and experience in sustainable urban agriculture, Jewish spirituality, intentional community, and leadership development. The Fellowship’s experiential curriculum is designed to equip fellows with the tools to become agents of positive change in their own lives and in their communities.

Now in its sixth year, the Urban Organic Farming Fellowship has graduated over 150 young adults who have gone on to work in the fields of environmental education and policy, sustainable agriculture, community organizing, Jewish education and social entrepreneurship.

Upcoming Urban Adamah Fellowship Opportunities

Summer: June 11 – August 25, 2017

Fall: September 4 – November 21, 2017

At Urban Adamah we are working in many ways to respond to economic disparity that exists in our communities. Our hope is to make the Fellowship as accessible as possible, regardless of class background. Thanks to our program supporters, we are able to offer the 2017 Fellowship for a sliding scale fee of $600-$3,000. This highly subsidized fee covers housing, food and all program-related expenses. We accept 12­–14 fellows per season. Admission is on a rolling basis, and we encourage applicants to apply as soon as they’ve made the decision to enroll in a particular season.

The Urban Adamah Jewish Community Farm, located in Berkeley, CA, integrates the practices of Jewish tradition, sustainable agriculture, mindfulness and social action to build loving, just and sustainable communities.
