Food should be shared!

Are you a social media jedi master? Do you love writing great posts and taking gorgeous photos in a flash for IG, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat?  If you answered yes to either of those questions, hurray!  We have an internship opportunity made for you. We’d love to hear from those really interested in applying their social media savviness and building out a portfolio and getting hands on experiences. If you love to snap, post, tweet, or craft a great IG and you have a creative streak and a love for food, please apply!

Giving Garden is a local Davis startup with a big, global mission to grow communities around food and food around communities. We are focused on building local food and gardening communities with the help of technology. We specifically want to bring food knowledge and produce sharing into the 21st century with all the data and tools that are at our generations fingertips.

To do this, we launched our first local food and social gardening app in beta in the Fall of 2017 and are looking for interns to help us reach the communities we’ll be serving, including Davis and Sacramento. The app will use crowdsourced data to help gardeners grow the right foods based on their location and community, will enable gardeners and local food lovers to give and get extra home-grown produce, and it will grow communities around food, through profiles, knowledge-exchange and social tools.


We are looking for interns (college students and high schools students are welcome) to join our efforts to reach communities across the country. Please read the description below and email your availability, cover letter and resume to  interns@givinggarden.io if you are interested.

As a Giving Garden social media intern you will be working directly with the CEO, who has experience growing products and communities at companies like Xbox, YouTube and Flipboard. You will be working on writing, content production, social media, and community management and outreach.

Your hours will be very flexible: 5-10 hours a week, with 1 regular meeting bi-weekly (once every 2 weeks) on Google hangouts or in person (based on your location) and communication between meetings will be handled via email and Slack.

Internships are currently unpaid, but you’ll get hands on social media, content marketing and community management training and experience, continual mentorship and advice on career paths and growth, and valuable connections and experiences that will help you on your path to an awesome career.  

To apply, please send a cover letter, links to any blogs or social media accounts you may have managed (if applicable), and a resume/CV to interns@givinggarden.io.

We’d love to hear from you!

– Deema and The Giving Garden Team
