Each year we offer several Internships opportunities each semester. Interns are an integral part of our programming.

All interns help design their jobs/goals and report directly to the farm co-founders. Interns are compensated with food and flowers, glowing references, and are considered for employment as positions become available.

We expect you to abide by Covid stipulations as needed when working on the farm. While some tasks can be done remotely, you should plan on being at our historic east Austin farm (8310 Canoga Ave., Austin 78724) most of the time.

Please send your resume with a cover letter explaining your 1)internship goals, 2) hours you are available to work each week and 3) length of internship to info@greengatefarms.net. We will respond within one week. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit the farm, either by volunteering or shopping at the farm stand on Saturday mornings.

Community Organizers

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Community Organizer! Community Organizers (CO) play a critical role because we depend upon you to extend the reach of our farm.


COs receive free food each week in exchange for organizing a group of 10 or more members who receive weekly shares of vegetables through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. This entails:

  • Establishing a site where members can pick up their vegetables (e.g., your porch, office, church or other location); promoting the farm's CSA program; and ensuring your group is ready to participate from the start of the season.
  • Serve as point person so all shares are distributed on the day they are delivered to your site from the farm.
  • Maintain a sign-in sheet, provided by Green Gate Farms, where members check off their names when they pick up their shares.
  • Notify us immediately if there are any problems.
