Greenhouse and Landscaping




CIP Code 01.0601

The Greenhouse/Landscaping program will benefit any student pursuing any agricultural career such as horticulture, floriculture, landscaping, and production agriculture.

All students are trained in a general curriculum, studying subjects such as plant growth and soil science, greenhouse operations and small business development.  Students interested in horticulture and floriculture will concentrate their time in the greenhouse working with growing plants and flowers.  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, and operation of agricultural 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.
