Since its inaugural season in 2011, Urban Adamah fellows have volunteered at local school gardens, urban farms, and social justice organizations. All placements are within biking or BART distance from the fellows’ residence. Our community partners, past and present, are listed below.
“Urban Adamah fellows recently facilitated a six-week gardening class for our patients. Some told us that they had never been to a garden before. Several mothers shared that they were grateful to have an opportunity to do something active in a safe space for their small children. Even the staff has benefited from our partnership: last month the clinic’s supervisors had a tour of the farm and came back very enthusiastic about continuing to work with Urban Adamah. We wish every community had a farm like Urban Adamah!”

“Each week, four Urban Adamah fellows work alongside City Slicker Farms staff and community members to transform the community of West Oakland. We plant seeds at community market farms, construct planter boxes from recycled lumber for backyard gardens, help with organic pest control, turn compost, care for chickens, and so much more. Our work is profoundly strengthened by the support of Urban Adamah.”
