Berkeley's Newest Urban Farm Is Totally Mobile

A new agricultural practice using materials salvaged from the urban-waste stream to grow organic produce that could be given away locally.The Huffington Post, July 12, 2011

Inner-city agriculture is booming in the Bay Area. While all urban farms aim to heal the world, Berkeley's newest such enterprise is going at it from an environmental, educational, social-justiceand spiritual angle. As far as heaven and earth are concerned, they've got it covered.

"For thousands of years, Jewish people -- like most people in the world -- were farmers," saysUrban Adamah's founder, Adam Berman. "Even if you were a tailor or a carpenter, you still grew your own food. If you scratch the surface of Jewish tradition, you see agriculture and the cycle of nature everywhere -- from blessings where we address the Lord 'who creates the fruit of the earth' to biblical narratives filled with connections to the natural world."

After earning an MBA from UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business in 2001, Berman became the executive director of Connecticut'sIsabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center. That's where he founded what he calls "Adamah 1.0" -- a three-month fellowship program that trained twenty-something intellectuals how to farm.
