After the ceremony, participants toured the inside of the greenhouse. Outside are plastic holding containers where mature marine plants will be placed to acclimate before being transplanted to nearby Bahia Grande. Several black tanks situated around the building hold rainwater gathered from the corrugated roof via a system of rain gutters.
