The Urban Adamah Fellowship is Accepting 2018 Applications!

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 in intentional community.

Through the operation of Urban Adamah’s two-acre organic farm and internships with local community organizations, fellows gain significant skills, training and experience in sustainable urban agriculture, Jewish spirituality, intentional community, and leadership development.

Upcoming Fellowships

Summer: June 11 - August 22, 2018

Fall: August 28 - November 20, 2018

Thanks to a special one time grant, we are able to offer the 2018 Summer Fellowship for a flat fee of $600. We accept up to 14 fellows per season. Admission is on a rolling basis.

Prior Experience NOT Required

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.
