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.

Upcoming Fellowships
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. We can offer the Fall Fellowship for a sliding scale fee of $600-$3,000. The fee covers on-site 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.
