Hours

Urban Adamah is trying to make the Fellowship as accessible as possible, regardless of class background. Thanks to our program supporters, we are able to offer both 2019 Fellowship seasons for a flat rate of $750. The fellowship fee covers food, housing, staff time, and all program-related expenses for the full eleven-week program. Please note that the actual cost of the Fellowship is roughly $15,000 per fellow. To cover these costs, close to 85% is raised from foundations and individuals; about 10% comes from farm visitor fees; and the remaining 5% represents what we ask fellows to pay. At the end of the fellowship, we ask fellows who are able, to make a financial contribution to the organization to support our ability to run the fellowship in future seasons.

Yes; Fellows live in a shared, newly built community residence right on the farm. Living communally is a rich opportunity to develop communication skills, appreciate differences, and resolve conflicts. The Urban Adamah staff supports this process through community-building exercises, regular meetings, and other practices.

Urban Adamah provides a food budget sufficient to purchase foodstuffs for the season - included in the fellowship fee. Food shopping responsibilities and cooking, as well as all household duties, are shared among fellows. The community house is vegetarian.
