Summer 2014

“Urban Adamah opened my eyes to the great intersection of Judaism and food….”


“I’d never felt connected in synagogue. Urban Adamah gave me an experience of communing with the land as my spiritual practice – when I express my Judaism, I farm, and when I farm, I express my Judaism.”

Danielle Frankel is the founder of Tuv Ha’aretz – Portland’s first Jewish CSA – a farmer and “Jewish Food” activist. In 2014, Danielle graduated from Pitzer College with a degree in English Literature. Right after graduation Danielle completed the Urban Adamah fellowship, and then WWOOFed in Spain for several months.

Now back in her native Portland, Danielle is busy orchestrating the first year of Tuv Ha’aretz as well as laying the groundwork for a Jewish Food Conference in Portland in March of 2016. If you have questions about Tuv Ha’aretz, visit www.tuvhaaretzportland.com
