Learn How to Plant a Pollinator Garden on ‘CT Outdoors’ with Old Lyme’s Suzanne Thompson

OLD LYME — Now more than ever, pollinating insects and animals need our help to survive says Kim Eierman, environmental horticulturist and landscape designer and author of The Pollinator Victory Garden. And humans depend on pollinators, which are critical to our food supply and are responsible for the reproduction of the vast majority of all flowering plants on our planet.

Eierman, who lives in Bronxville, NY, is this week’s guest on Suzanne Thompson’s weekly CT Outdoors radio show. Thompson is an Old Lyme resident.

The 30-minute show airs at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25, and 7 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 26, on WLIS 1420 AM/Old Saybrook & WMRD 1150 AM/Middletown and streaming at

The Pollinator Victory Garden provides step-by-step advice on how to attract different kinds of pollinators to yards and landscapes, with lists of native plants for multiple settings. It includes pointers on how to provide year-round habitat support for bees, butterflies, moths, beetles and many other pollinators most people don’t realize are a vital part of healthy ecosystems.
