Kim Eierman

Sit back and listen while Jeff and Kim talk with Kim Eierman, founder of EcoBeneficial, and the author of The Pollinator Victory Garden, How To Win The War on Pollinator Decline with Ecological Gardening.

If you’ve been thinking of starting some plantings for pollinators in your backyard, you couldn’t find a better place to gather information on the how, when, where and why of what to plant for all pollinators, anywhere and everywhere. Kim’s book is full information for all kinds of plants for all kinds of pollinators. Lists by region, county, even zip code. And every kind of flower for birds, bees, bats, butterflies, beetles, flies and all the rest. Native plantings, developing pollinator pathways, and resources galore. Everything you’ll ever want to know about creating pollinator gardens of all sizes is in this book. Kim Eierman shares more information in just a half hour than you can find almost anywhere.

We also have an audio postcard from Rich Morris, of Broodminder who we interviewed earlier on Season 2, Episode 2!

So queue it up, sit back and enjoy!
