CFSA Board Members 2020

Ciranna began as a Board of Director for the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association (CFSA) in 2016 and will complete her second term in 2021. This farmer-driven, non-profit organization helps people in the Carolinas grow and eat local, organic food. CFSA advocates for fair farm policies and educates communities about local, organic agriculture.

Ciranna chairs the Board's Racial Equity Committee and serves on the Audit Committee.

In past years she has served on the Strategic Plan Committee and chaired the board's Agricultural Workforce Committee. Ciranna created a Farm Labor and Immigration Survey and facilitated a farm labor listening session to help CFSA staff measure CFSA farmer members’ interest in promoting policies that improve the lives of migrant farmworkers.
