Green Gate Farms, a certified organic farm, was established by Skip Connett and Erin Flynn in a blighted neighborhood in east Austin in 2006. Working off-farm jobs to fund our efforts, we restored a historical farm site to create a community resource for neighbors of all incomes. Our vision is to cultivate a healthy farm that feeds mind, body and soul. The past seven years have been a whirlwind!
Green Gate Farms and New Farm Institute are a small group of individuals (and a lot of volunteers) working to connect people to agriculture in a new way
