The Urban Adamah Fellowship is Accepting 2018 Applications
Connect to Something Bigger: Earth, Community, Social Action, 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 eighth year, the Fellowship has graduated over 190 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.
Summer: June 11 - August 22, 2018
Fall: August 28 - November 20, 2018
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 a special one time grant, we are able to offer the 2018 Summer Fellowship for a flat fee of $600. We can offer the Fall Fellowship for a sliding scale fee of $600-$3,000. The fee covers housing, food and all program-related expenses. We accept up to 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.
Through the operation of Urban Adamah's one acre organic farm and internship placements with other Bay Area community based organizations, fellows gain significant skills, training, and experience in sustainable urban agriculture, community building, and leadership development.
You do not need to have prior experience in farming, mindfulness practice, social action, or Jewish practice to apply to the 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.
