How do I add nutrients to my soil? What wild plants are good to harvest in the fall? Come out to the farm to learn about cover crops and wild edibles. We will also spend time understanding what it means to connect to the land and to develop a sense of place, reading and engaging with poetry and text by anthropologists, spiritual leaders, and poets, including Wendy Johnson (of Green Gulch Zen Center), W.S. Merwin, and Naomi Shihab Nye.

Come see our farm through the eyes of its chief steward and farmer, and find out the answers to these questions and more on our behind-the-scenes farm tour with Willow Rosenthal.
What do we grow and why? How has the farm evolved since we planted our first raised beds three years ago? How do carrots, kale, bees, goats, fish, worms and chickens form an interconnected ecosystem that produces an extraordinary abundance of produce and protein in a relatively small footprint right here in West Berkeley?
Urban Adamah Farm in West Berkeley is being built with the labor and love of thousands of individuals. Join us for an upcoming work party!
Work parties are open to small groups and individuals ages 12 and up. (Children ages 12-18 must be accompanied by an adult.) Work may include any number of farm chores, such as weeding, planting, harvesting, moving soil, mulching, watering, or chicken care.

It’s harvest time! Join us as we harvest our fall corn crop and transform the rainbow colored kernels of our Mayan heritage corn into multi-colored tortillas. We’ll feast on our tortillas and celebrate the incredible diversity of both our corn, and our human family.
All Family Farm gatherings also include sharing stories and music, exploring and tasting the latest delights growing on the farm, and preparing for Jewish holidays in a particularly hands-on farmy sort of way.
