Urban Adamah

Urban Adamah is a visionary project which integrates Jewish traditions, environmental education, mindfulness and social action in the context of urban farming.  The organization has purchased an extraordinary 2.2-acre site in West Berkeley which is adjacent to a restored creek, public parks, and ball fields. It is the ideal site for Urban Adamah’s new home. The new campus will double the size of Urban Adamah’s existing space and will dramatically increase their impact in the community through the expansion of their food production and educational programs.

Inspired by the vision, Trachtenberg Architects has, over the past year and a half,  volunteered all the time and expertise required to prepare preliminary plans and secure Zoning Approvals.

A $4.5 million capital campaign is currently underway which will cover the cost of the land ($2.1 million) and the construction of programmatic, administrative and residential infrastructure. Read an article about the project here.
