It was a pleasure to host Kim's Bees to Trees Lecture. Everyone I spoke to after the lecture thoroughly enjoyed her presentation and found much to think on. Her handouts were very helpful and her slideshow easy to follow with great information. My husband loved her data on the percent our our national water going to "green deserts" and the decline in species. I was thankful for Kim's explanation as to why butterfly bushes are harmful despite the fact that they bring so many butterflies.

I would highly recommend Kim Eierman as a speaker on pollinators and native plants. She delivered an excellent presentation, Eco-Beneficial 101, that was an informative and inspiring call to action, underscoring the urgent need to be better managers of our private green spaces along with simple, concrete suggestions to immediately improve these small ecosystems that can add up to big change. She was knowledgeable, engaging, and many funny moments lightened the tone of her talk—overall, a big hit and we look forward to bringing her back in the near future.

Kim Eierman presented her program 'Eco-Beneficial Gardening 101' to the Rowayton Gardeners on March 2, 2017. Kim possesses a wealth of knowledge on native plants and ecosystems and gave recommendations for creating healthy habitats for birds, insects, wildlife and humans. Ms. Eierman delivered a compelling and inspirational message to remind us that we all need to be stewards of our backyards and environment. Her colorful and informative Power Point presentation, excellent handouts and her passionate, professional and energetic style made for one of our best programs ever!
