Ash Berman

Finance Director

I started out my Urban Adamah journey as a fellow in the fall of 2011. I went on to co-found Urban Worm, Urban Adamah’s worm composting business, and then served as the full-time business manager for five years. I now live in the lovely Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts where I spend half of my work life on Urban Adamah’s finances and the other half as a labor & delivery nurse. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with degrees in geography, economics and business, and combine my greater passion for justice with my agricultural knowledge and business sense to not only keep Urban Adamah’s books balanced, but expand its reach and ability to make a difference.
