Super-charged and Inspirational

Mary Ellen Lemay from Fairfield County CT - 03/11/2021 11:33:32

Kim did a Lunch and Learn zoom lecture for the Aspetuck Land Trust membership and it was world class. Her lecture dovetailed beautifully with our Native Ecotype Plant sale. Kim beautifully inspired people about planting for a sequence of bloom and what plants are the powerhouses for improving biodiversity in the yard. Excellent speaker, outstanding content! We will have her speak for us again without question!

Kim was one of our featured speakers at the annual GreenScapes Symposium organized by Montgomery Parks in Maryland. This event attracts more than 900 participants and we received a lot of positive feedback on Kim's presentation. She is a wonderful speaker who brings a wealth of real-world experience to her presentations. I would highly recommend her.

Engaging and Inspiring Speaker

We booked Kim for our 9th Annual Author Event, the first by Zoom.. Previous speakers have included Doug Tallamy, Rick Darke, and Heather Holm, and Kim is in the same league. Kim was terrific! She spoke on the topic of the Pollinator Victory Garden and presented so much material in new and engaging manner. She intertwined text-heavy slides with lots of inspiring photos to illustrate her points. She definitely wowed our Zoom audience of 320. We heard so many kudos from those who attended. We highly recommend her.
