The Friendly Village Greenhouse is back in business

After the severe winter weather destroyed one of the greenhouses located behind the Cumberland River Behavioral Health Center, known locally as “Comp Care,” a new greenhouse is now up and running.

Robbie Henson, horticulture supervisor for the therapeutic rehabilitation program at the facility, said the greenhouses are used as therapy for the facility’s clients.

“They’re what are called pre-finished,” Henson said. “They’re not completely done.”
Henson mentioned one of the facilities’ greenhouses was destroyed over the winter.
“It was a harsh winter,” Henson said. “One of our greenhouses collapsed on us.”
“We’ve got the new one up now. It’s bigger and better. Hopefully we’ll have a lot more stuff this year, and I think we’ll have a much better season.”

“We open up to the public in April,” said Henson. “We sell a lot of vegetables – a lot of tomatoes, everybody likes tomatoes – a lot of hanging baskets. We do petunias, geraniums, quite a few of those.”
