Maurice (Reese) Crotteau joined Pumpkin Brook in 2014 as a Crew Supervisor and quickly proved his worth in many arenas: fine garden maintenance, woody plant transplanting, pruning, permaculture garden expansion, and vegetable garden construction projects.

Reese is a graduate of Sterling College with a degree in Sustainable Agriculture and Wildland Ecology. He first worked on a private estate in southern New Hampshire, routinely transplanting trees and shrubs and managing their care as Nursery Manager. He has worked also as a Vineyard Manager and Field Manager on an organic farm. In addition, Reese has many years of work experience all over New England in timber frame carpentry. He is our go-to man for designing and building unique garden structures.

In 2018 Reese joined our Plant Health Care department as a Technician and was promoted to Plant Health Care Manager in 2019.
