Come learn about pests and diseases that are found in Missoula Valley gardens. Missoula County Extension’s Sandy Perrin will lead a hands-on talk in the garden discussing the pests and diseases that plague you, and how to safe and effectively treat them! If you’re not sure whether a bug is friend or foe, bring a specimen in a container and we will check it out.
Growing up on a ranch in western Montana, Sandy started gardening with her Mom at a very early age, which led her to earning a horticulture degree in college. Sandy has worked at the Missoula County Extension office for the last 16 years and relishes the opportunity to help people take care of their gardens and yards. Her love of plants & being outdoors keeps this plant nerd in a happy place!
