Full-time

Overview:

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.

Through the operation of Urban Adamah's one acre organic farm and internship placements with other Bay Area community based organizations, fellows gain significant skills, training, and experience in sustainable urban agriculture, community building, and leadership development.
