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 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 250 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, 2019
Fall: September 9 - November 21, 2019
PRIOR EXPERIENCE NOT REQUIRED
You do not need to have specific prior experience in any of the four content areas of the fellowship: farming, mindfulness practice, social justice work, or Jewish practice. We seek candidates who are passionate about engaging whole-heartedly in the internal (mind, heart and body) and external (farming is physical) work of this experience. Those who thrive in the fellowship arrive ready to go deep, be vulnerable, contribute to the community and ask sometimes difficult questions about who and how they want to be in the world.
If this sounds like you, we’d love to have you.
