I have always been environmentally concerned and after hearing Kim speak I was moved to take even more action! She is knowledgable and enthusiastic about the subject of ecological gardening and presents the material is such a clear and fun manner that i was on the edge of my seat while listening to her. She is so inspiring and I can't wait to take another one of her classes!

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.
