Public Programs

Urban Adamah offers an ever-expanding calendar of community programs for adults, children, and families at our two-acre farm site in Berkeley. Events range from monthly Shabbat services and Havdalah gatherings to Jewish holiday celebrations and learning workshops. Speakers and spectacular musicians travel near and far to showcase their talent on the farm. Urban Adamah also partners with community practitioners and teachers to offer mindfulness classes, urban agriculture workshops, volunteer days and a variety of other learning opportunities.

We hope to see you at an event soon! Curious about our programming, but want to know more? For more information please contact Ari Eisen, Public Programs Manager at ari@urbanadamah.org or 510 649 1595 x 106 – she’d love to talk to you.
