About Us

Urban Adamah is an educational farm and community center in Berkeley, California, that integrates the practices of Jewish tradition, sustainable agriculture, mindfulness and social action to build loving, just and sustainable communities. We provide educational programs and community celebrations for more than 5,000 visitors a year, as well as a residential fellowship program for young adults that combines organic farming, progressive Jewish living and community internships. Urban Adamah also offers innovative, farm-based programs for school-age children. Our organic farm produces a diverse yield of crops, all of which we donate to the local community through food banks and our weekly Free Farm Stand.

**Urban Adamah is planning to move in the early fall of 2016 from its current site on Parker Street to its new location on 6th Street.

“Adamah” Means “Earth” in Hebrew

Our work is inspired by the core Jewish values of love (ahava), compassion (hesed) and justice (tzedek). These values inform all of our activities, which are designed to connect people to Judaism’s ancient wisdom and deep commitment to provide for others, nourish the soul and care for the earth.

The Farm and Education Center

Urban Adamah currently makes its home on a one-acre lot at 1050 Parker Street. We welcome visitors throughout the year, and offer an exciting menu of farm-based programs for school groups and organizations. We also host celebrations for most Jewish holidays, sustainability talks and workshops, a unique Shabbat service, Havdalah dance parties, a monthly gathering for women and girls and a whole lot more. Please check our program calendar for all upcoming events. We hope to see you on the farm soon!


Urban Adamah is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that relies on the generous donations of individuals and foundations. We are grateful to you for supporting our work. Donate here.
