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 10,000 visitors annually. Our signature programs include a residential leadership fellowship program for young adults and a farm-based summer camp for youth ages 3-12. We also offer an exciting menu of farm-based programs for school groups and other organizations, and host open-to-the-public community celebrations for most Jewish holidays.

Please check our program calendar for all upcoming events.

Our organic farm produces a diverse yield of fruits, vegetables, and eggs, all of which we donate to those in the community in need through our weekly Free Farm Stand.

“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.


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.
