Internship Details:

“The Urban Adamah Fellowship, based in Berkeley, CA, is a three-month residential training program for young adults (ages 21-31) that combines urban organic farming and progressive Jewish learning and living within the setting of an intentional community.

Through the operation of Urban Adamah's two-acre organic farm, classes with local educators, and internships with neighboring community organizations, fellows gain significant skills, training, and experience in sustainable urban agriculture, Jewish spirituality, intentional community, and leadership development. The Fellowship's experiential curriculum is designed to equip fellows with the tools to become agents of positive change in their own lives and in their communities.

Now in its eighth year, the Fellowship has graduated over 250 young adults who have gone on to work in the fields of environmental education and policy, sustainable agriculture, community organizing, Jewish education, and social entrepreneurship.
