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. “Adamah” Means “Earth” in Hebrew. At Camp Urban Adamah, we offer campers a taste of organic farm life through fun and dynamic hands-on programs at our urban farm. Our camp sessions are inspired by children’s natural curiosity and innate connectedness to the earth. Whether they are planting, harvesting, building mud forts or preparing farm-to-table meals, camper explore the wonders of the natural world right here in the city.
My then 3.5 year old went to one week at UA summer 2018, liked it fine but I was more excited about it than he was. He went to the next winter break camp and loved it—multiple requests over a few months to go back in the summer, and occasionally sings songs (about the earth and composting) he learned there 5 months later. There were at least 2 counselors from the summer still there for winter which was lovely—he remembered them and they remembered him. He's excited to go back.
