Rachael Moore graduated from Dickinson College in the summer of 2018, and for the year before that she was our house “mom” at the Treehouse, or Center for Sustainable Living, at Dickinson. I had a chance to visit her last July at the Rodale Institute in Kutztown, Pennsylvania, during their field day, and see her passion for agriculture in action. I think of her as a huge proponent for self-care and wellness, as well as a master of aesthetic sustainability. Read on to learn how being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes changed Rachael’s relationship with food and our food system, what’s on her travel bucketlist, and the experience that turned her towards vegetarianism.
