Dwarf Nativars – Do They Measure Up?

EcoBlog

For those of us with small landscapes, dwarf cultivars of native plants can seem like a gift from heaven.  Want to grow a particular native plant, but just don’t have the room?  Have a straight species plant, like a native viburnum, that needs a pollinator partner for fruit production –…

EcoBlog

There is a huge wave of enthusiasm for bee hotels and that’s totally understandable – we all want to help native bees that are facing incredible challenges.

Pollinator Victory Garden Buzz

Peter Nelson

Director of The Pollinators, filmmaker and beekeeper

"The Pollinator Victory Garden is a book for these times. Kim Eierman empowers readers with ideas, direction and the inspiration they need to create beautiful and eco-friendly habitats for many different pollinators. Creating healthy, diverse and chemical free habitats are essential steps in solving pollinator decline and The Pollinator Victory Garden guides you towards creating your own lovely garden habitat."

Dr. Douglas Tallamy

Author of Bringing Nature Home and Nature’s Best Hope, co-author of The Living Landscape, and professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology, University of Delaware

"Leave it to Kim Eierman to come up with a unique call to action - one that worked in the past when our society was threatened by war, and one that will work again to defeat the very real threat of pollinator declines. Kim has thought of everything with a truly comprehensive guide to improving the lot of our pollinators at home. Make a Pollinator Victory Garden and join the effort to save our most essential creatures!"

Bill McKibben

Author, Educator, Environmentalist and Co-founder 350.org

"God knows pollinators need every edge we can give them — and this book will tell you precisely how to use your patch of land, however small, to make a real difference!"

Phyllis Stiles

Founder, Bee City USA®

"With so many pollinator species at risk around the globe, The Pollinator Victory Garden could not be more timely. Please put this thoughtful, easy-to-read book to use in making your own yard a haven for pollinators."

Nancy Lawson

Author of The Humane Gardener: Nurturing a Backyard Habitat for Wildlife

"If everyone followed Kim Eierman’s advice, our pollinator crisis would be solved. Her detailed, compassionate book provides actionable steps for helping not only much-loved garden visitors like butterflies and bees but also the less appreciated beetles, flies and other pollinating creatures. Her well-written, beautifully illustrated book is a call to action: if creating a victory food garden for humans was a patriotic act during World War II, then creating a victory garden for pollinators is an equally important citizen duty today."

Carol Capobianco

Director, The Native Plant Center

"Read this book as if your life depended on it — and it does: No pollinators = no plants = no people. Kim Eierman turns the table on the dismaying facts about pollinators by offering positive steps each of us can take to make a difference. Her passion shouts: “gimme a V…” — or, more aptly “gimme a Bee"."
