Nadia Ruffin is an entomologist, gardener and educator. She is the founder of Agricademy Inc, and Urban Farm Sista based in Cincinnati, Ohio. A lover of bugs and all life forms since very young herself, Nadia loves sharing this admiration and curiosity, with youth especially.

In 2018 the Cincinnati City Council honored Nadia’s farming and agriculture initiatives, the primary focus of which is to share her knowledge and passion for the biological world and all that it offers to us in the way of endless and healthy wonder, food, beauty, and learning.

In preparation for National Pollinator Week coming up next week, we speak with Nadia this week and explore this wonder, this work, as well as how and why we could all try  to meet and manage our own fears. Join us!
