Greta Moore - Raleigh, North Carolina Educator
Greta first became an environmentalist as a child in the woods behind her Massachusetts home. She carried this passion for outdoor exploration and environmental stewardship into her academic and professional career. She earned a B.S. in Environmental Studies from the University of Vermont, focusing on ecological design for food systems and water management. Greta’s interest in climate education grew when she studied global development and water issues in Senegal. She later wrote her undergraduate thesis on designing for stormwater management and worked with local organizations to improve the health of Vermont waterways. Later, as an organic farmer, she witnessed the effects of climate change on agriculture first-hand.
Greta joins the ACE team after devoting her personal and professional life inspiring others to interact consciously and sustainably with their environment. As an organic farmer, an outdoor leader, and a farm-based educator, she has worked with youth organizations and schools to improve food security and nutrition, and to create dialogue surrounding food justice and climate change.
Greta loves being outside and especially enjoys rock climbing, camping, and gardening. Her other hobbies include dancing around the house, miniature art projects, and cooking.
