About the Program: 

Urban Adamah provides garden and farm based experiential learning opportunities for young people all across the Bay Area. Urban Adamah is a Jewish farm that is inspired by Jewish tradition and practice. The youth department of Urban Adamah uses fun and dynamic hands-on activities for kids to get a taste of organic farming. Urban Adamah connects kids' relationship to food and earth while cultivating a culture and sense of mindfulness and appreciation. At camp, we do this through planting, harvesting, preparing farm to table meals, and building mud forts. Throughout the year we provide experiential field trips to public schools, Jewish organizations, and more to bring science standards to life! Over the summer we have a day camp for kids ages 3-11 and serve about 350 kids! We serve kids of many different backgrounds, both inside and outside of the Jewish community.
