The Horticulture Assistant Program offers help to clients seeking information about home insect and pest control; orchard, fruit and vegetable garden care; urban windbreak, landscaping and lawn maintenance; soil improvement; and insect, disease and plant identification.
Horticulture Assistant, Amy Grandpre, started her career with Yellowstone County in July of 1980. Raised and educated in Tulsa Oklahoma, she quickly had to "re-learn" local horticulture. The biggest challenges were the short growing season and alkaline soils, as well as all the different insects. These are the issues she also finds most common in her day to day contacts.
