When it comes to climate change, why do we do so little when we know so much? In advance of the Northern California People’s Climate Rally on Sunday, September 21st Urban Adamah is hosting a film screening of Disruption: Climate. Change. This film focuses on climate change, its impact, and calls for future action. Come at 7:00 pm for the screening of the hour-long film. Following the film we will briefly split into small groups to discuss the film and its messages.

The event is free and open to all ages, but please register in advance!

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?

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.
