Urban Organic Farming, Social Justice Learning in CA

Urban Adamah, based in Berkeley, CA, is a three-month intensive residential leadership training program for young adults ages 20-29, thatUrban Organic Jewish Farm integrates urban organic farming, social justice work and progressive Jewish living and learning. Twelve Urban Adamah Fellows are selected each season to operate an organic farm and educational center, intern with community organizations addressing issues at the intersection of poverty, food security and environmental stewardship, and learn an approach to Jewish tradition that opens the heart and builds joyful community.

Applicants do not need any farming or Jewish knowledge to participate. Fellows come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. We are looking for individuals who are most likely to leverage the gifts of the program to make positive change in their own lives and in the world. Fellows need to bring some form of transportation to Urban Adamah. A car can be helpful but a bicycle or a scooter is completely sufficient. Some internships will necessitate the use of public transportation (bus or subway) if you don’t have your own transportation. The fee for the fellowship season is $1295, though some scholarship funding is available for those unable to pay. This fee covers food, lodging and educational programming for the twelve week season. It does not include transportation, phone, entertainment or other incidental expenses.

Spring Fellowship: March 4 – May 27, 2012

Summer Fellowship: June 3 – August 26, 2012

Fall Fellowship: September 2 – November 21, 2012
