Internships & Employment
Working with Us
Interns welcome!

Workshare Members

From its beginnings in 2006, Green Gate Farms has sought to keep an open gate to all people who care about local organic food and flowers. Our Workshare program is one way you can share your talents with the farm, whether it's in the field or in the office, while learning as much as possible.

For the Fall 2022 season, we are seeking a team of volunteer workshare members who are interested in all aspects of growing, planting, harvesting, and weeding vegetables and flowers. We also hope to celebrate the farm's 120th birthday on Nov. 12 so people who enjoy special events, marketing, and history are needed too. Work is primarily at our east Austin farm and Bastrop farm in the mornings, Wednesday - Saturday. After a four-hour shift, workshare members go home with bounty from the fields as we have it, vegetables and/or bouquets.

Internships

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


Ideal candidates are mature, good-humored and flexible. You do not have to have farming or gardening experience, just be a person who takes the initiative to jump in as needed. 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’re currently seeking 
interns to help with:
- Communications: Web Development, Reporter, Social Media, Graphic Design, Film,...
- Special Events and Fundraising
- Climate Action and Farmland Preservation
- Food Justice and Community Engagement
- Farm-Based Education
- Bergstrom History Project
- Researcher

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.


This season is different from most because, unlike the past 15 years, we are not having our CSA program. (All of our energies are currently focused on farmland preservation and infrastructure challenges.)

Community Organizers are needed to help with farm programming, including:

  • Leading farm tours on Saturday mornings at noon
  • Helping with farm-based education activities
  • Assisting with marketing
  • Guiding volunteers
  • Supporting our partners, like Black Women In Business
