“Urban Adamah transformed my relationship to myself, the Earth, and Judaism. I wouldn’t be who I am today without these past few months… amazing people, amazing program, amazing experience.”
– Ari Eisenstadt, Summer 2015
Training for a Lifetime
The Urban Adamah Fellowship is a three-month residential leadership program for adults ages 21-31 that integrates urban organic farming, mindfulness practice, social justice training and progressive Jewish learning and living. Fellows live, learn and work on our urban farm campus. We accept up to 14 individuals per fellowship season.
Now in its eighth year, the Urban Adamah Fellowship has graduated over 200 young adults who have gone on to work in the fields of environmental education and policy, sustainable agriculture, community organizing, Jewish education, politics, and social entrepreneurship.
2019 Fellowship Dates
Spring: April 2 – May 31
Summer: June 10 – August 22
Fall: September 9 – November 22
The fee for the fellowship is $2,800. However, we have substantial need-based financial aid available. You may apply for financial aid up to $1700 (meaning, your fellowship fee could be as low as $800). The fellowship fee covers food, housing and all program-related expenses.
Prior Experience NOT Required
You do not need to have specific prior experience in any of the four content areas of the fellowship: farming, mindfulness practice, social justice work, or Jewish practice. We seek candidates who are passionate about engaging whole-heartedly in the internal (mind, heart and body) and external (farming is physical) work of this experience. Those who thrive in the fellowship arrive ready to go deep, be vulnerable, contribute to the community and ask sometimes difficult questions about who and how they want to be in the world.
If this sounds like you, we’d love to have you.
