Jodi Helmer writes about farming and the environment for Scientific American, NPR, Civil Eats, Modern Farmer, Huff Post, The Revelator, and NRDC, among others. When she’s not covering stories about the resurgence of crisis gardening, the environmental downsides of illegal cannabis cultivation or drone bees, she raises vegetables, cut flowers, bees, chickens and an unruly pack of rescue dogs on a farm-ette in North Carolina.
