On Wednesday, August 26 at 7pm Perrot Memorial Library will present a Zoom Discussion in partnership with the Greenwich Botanical Center, Garden Club of Old Greenwich, Riverside Garden Club, Pollinators Pathway and the Greenwich Conservation Commission: The Pollinator Victory Garden with Author and Environmental Horticulturist Kim Eierman.
The passion and urgency that inspired WWI and WWII Victory Gardens is needed today to meet another threat to our food supply and our environment – the steep decline of pollinators. The Pollinator Victory Garden offers practical solutions for winning the war against the demise of these essential creatures.
Full of information on how to transition home gardens into pollinator heavens while improving the environment around you, no matter how big or small the garden may be.
Based in New York, Kim Eierman teaches at the New York Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, The Native Plant Center in NY, Rutgers Home Gardeners School and several other institutions. Eierman is the founder of EcoBeneficial, a horticulture communications and consulting company, created to change the way we think about and manage our landscapes.
“Pollinators are responsible for the reproduction of the vast majority of flowering plants on Earth, and about 1/3 of the food that we eat, but many pollinator species are in steep decline. The sad reality is that our home landscapes have little to offer them,” said Kim Eierman. “By creating a Pollinator Victory Garden in any landscape, every homeowner can change that. The warm days and cool nights of fall provide a perfect time to plant your own pollinator paradise.”
