Order a Fern

Although much effort and time is involved in growing ferns in the BVT greenhouse, the residents do not see it as work. Rather, it is a therapeutic activity that teaches the residents valuable skills, all while providing stress relief and relaxation in a calming atmosphere. 

It takes a lot to get the fern to its final stage. First, residents work to mix the soil with nutrients that foster growth and an creates environment for the ferns to prosper. The residents prepare each pot with this treated soil. A small branch and root is pulled from a larger fern and is planted in the pot. Residents water the ferns each day and nurture the plants by weeding and clipping browning leaves regularly. Once the ferns reach a desirable size, they are sold to the public.
