Live on the farm. Support the farm.
The Urban Adamah Residency Program is an opportunity for young adults, ages 21 – 35 to live on site at the farm, build community with like-minded and hearted souls, and support the work of Urban Adamah through our work-trade program. The commitment is for six months and is renewable for six-month periods based on supplemental applications and discussions with the Young Adult Programs staff.
Here are some thing we look for…
HOUSING & FEES
Thr residence is a shared space between Urban Adamah Residents and Fellows. Residency housing options are…
The price includes furniture, utilities, internet, and laundry. Prospective applicants who want to live in a shared apartment will get an opportunity to meet with current residents in the apartment before they commit.
* Note: The 1 bedroom apartment uses a shared bathroom that is connected to our greywater system. Only biodegradable, biocompatible, and/or nontoxic soaps may be used.
ABOUT THE RESIDENCY...
Residents live on the farm and have free access to most of Urban Adamah’s public programs. Residents have the opportunity for hands-on farming experience and can have personal garden boxes outside of the residency building. Being in the residency is a chance to build intentional community including weekly meals and Shabbat dinners (program budget for meals and house supplies). Being a resident gives you the opportunity to create and host your own programs / events on the farm for each other, your peers, and/or the Urban Adamah community!
THE WORK TRADE
Residents commit to completing 30 hours per month of work-trade at Urban Adamah. This includes 10 hours per month of public program support, 10 hours per month of farm work and 15 hours per month of a project(s) supervised by an Urban Adamah staff member. Projects might include… building new planter boxes for the children’s garden, making food for the community fridge, making herbal teas and tinctures, helping to build a shed, or facilitating a community program.
Residents share regular dinners and Shabbat experiences together. Additionally, they collaborate to complete shared house and farm responsibilities (cleaning shared spaces, taking out trash, weekend animal care, etc.) Residents also facilitate and participate in bi-weekly house meetings.
In addition to the residency program, we have a Fellowship program housed in the Residency building. Fellows will be around from June – November of each year. To facilitate community building among the programs, residents are expected to participate in a dinner with the incoming Fellowship group the first week of the summer and fall Fellowships.
The residency program is currently at full capacity.
We will update the website when rooms become available! If you have questions about the program, please contact the Young Adult Programs Associate, Gen Slosberg.
