Horticultural and Landscaping

The Drew Mathieson Center for Horticultural and Agricultural Technology is one of Western Pennsylvania’s premier educational greenhouses.

The Drew Mathieson Center is the home for BTC’s Horticulture Technology major and offers an applied learning experience for students aspiring to careers in landscaping, design, retail or wholesale floral, greenhouse operations and other “green” industries. The students learn in a real “green industry” environment that grows boutique quality Phalaenopsis orchids year-round. We also seasonally produce Poinsettias, Hydrangeas, perennial Hibiscus, and a variety of annuals, ferns, and herbs for wholesale in Pittsburgh and the surrounding communities. Proceeds from these sales support Manchester Bidwell’s programs.
