For Your Group or School
Each of our experiential programs is designed to foster connections — to ourselves, to each other, to the food we eat, and to the natural world. Drawing on the practices of sustainable agriculture and the richness of Jewish tradition, our programs integrate hands-on farm activities together with story, ritual, and song to create truly memorable learning experiences. We offer both Jewish and secular programs for groups of all backgrounds.
Most of our programs include age-appropriate farm projects — planting, harvesting, building, and animal tending — all of which contribute to the food justice efforts that Urban Adamah is making in the local community.
We welcome groups of all cultural and religious backgrounds and adapt programs to meet the needs of each group we serve. Since we opened our gates in 2011, we’ve run programs for almost 100 Bay Area Jewish and secular organizations and schools.

Subsidized Programs for
Underserved Public Schools
Urban Adamah seeks to make our site and outdoor educational opportunities available to underserved and underrepresented populations in the Bay Area. Through our Adventure Fund for Underserved Public Schools*, we are able to offer a limited number of fully subsidized group programs for school groups from underserved Oakland and Richmond public schools. We prioritize bringing groups from schools which have over 70% of the student population enrolled in the Free and Reduced Price Meal Program.
We are committed to developing culturally relevant curriculum and hiring diverse staff who fit the population served. School groups return to the farm multiple times in order to provide education experience across seasons. These experiential programs cover the soil cycle, plant cycle, natural building, farm-to-table cooking, animal care, medicinal plants, and more. If you are a public school teacher who would like to bring your class, please contact Anika Rice.
