Erin Franey
Erin Franey is honored to be part of the CCOF farmer community as a second season apprentice at Rainshadow Organics, a 200-acre full-diet farm in central Oregon. Her interest in farming is rooted in a boundless curiosity in food systems, food culture, and a commitment to building a more just and equitable world. She has worked as a community organizer, director of an international youth leadership program, and most recently at a cooking and nutrition education nonprofit in San Francisco. This season at Rainshadow she is both part of the crew and works part time as the farm’s outreach manager. She is most excited about her efforts piloting a full-diet, free choice CSA program that invites families to radically change their relationship to food by eating (almost) exclusively from the farm.
 
Congratulations Erin!
