Reviews

"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." - Phyllis Stiles, Founder, Bee CIty USA
"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." - Nancy Lawson, author of The Humane Gardener, Nurturing a Backyard Habitat for Wildlife
"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!" - Dr. Douglas Tallamy, author of Bringing Home Nature and Nature's Best Hope
"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!" - Bill McKibben, author, educator, environmentalist and co-founder, 350.org
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." - Carol Capobianco, Director, The Native Plant Center
"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.
