"I choose this program because I like being outside and working with my hands. Learning about different plant characteristics and getting to see them grow is very rewarding."

Piper D.


The Greenhouse/Landscaping program will be a benefit to any student pursuing any of the horticulture careers such as floriculture, landscaping, and greenhouse/nursery.

All students are trained in a general curriculum, studying subjects such as plant growth and identification, soil science, greenhouse management, and small business development. Students interested in floriculture will concentrate their time in the greenhouse working with flowers and houseplants. In addition, students will work with the arrangement of flowers and other decorative materials, constructing projects such as centerpieces, corsages, and wreaths.

Those interested in landscaping and mechanics will specialize in the repair and maintenance of small engines, construction of landscaping projects, hardscaping, and operation of horticulture equipment on the Beaver County CTC property.

The Beaver County CTC has an active chapter in the National FFA Organization in which all students are urged to actively participate.
