    About the place:
    In 1844, a rare orchid planted by amateur botanist and connaisseur De Man de Lennick, flourished in a greenhouse in Bierbais. It was Huntleya Violacea, the singular orchid found by M. Schomburgk, in the province of Guyana, only a few years earlier. In the same year, Annals of the Royal Society of Horticulture and Botany of Ghent in their first number (1844), dedicated about rare orchids, speaks about the flowering of rare orchids in Bierbais.
    Greenhouse and botanical garden in Bierbais (1828), which received modernist-brutalist architectural interventions in 1972, hosts nowadays artists, researchers and amateurs of permaculture as a result of the initiative of La Nacelle Foundation/ Orangeries de Bierbais. The Botanical Garden was conceived by the famous 19th century German landscape architect Charles Henri Petersen who also designed, a year later, the Botanical Garden in Brussels (1829), better known as Botanique.
