The Urban Adamah Urban Organic Gardening Fellowship Now Accepting 2016 Applications
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 in intentional community.
Through the operation of Urban Adamah’s one-acre organic farm and internships with social justice organizations, fellows gain significant skills, training and experience in sustainable urban agriculture, Jewish spirituality, intentional community, social justice and leadership development.
Summer: June 9 – August 26, 2016
Fall: September 4 – November 22, 2016
We accept 12–14 fellows per season. Admission is on a rolling basis.

You do not need to have prior experience in farming, mindfulness practice, social action, or Jewish practice to apply to the Urban Organic Gardening Fellowship. Many of our fellows enter the Fellowship without knowing the difference between a seed and a seedling, and leave three months later with the skills and confidence to create their own thriving gardens. We seek candidates who are passionate about engaging whole-heartedly in experiential education and community building in a Jewish context, who want to contribute their talents and skills inside and outside the Jewish world.
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.
