About Us:

Hilltop Garden & Nature Center was first established by IU Biology Professor, Barbara Shalucha in 1948. Hilltop has primarily focused on youth gardening, but has expanded its reach throughout the University and surrounding community to provide opportunities to learn about different gardening practices and connecting with nature. Hilltop provides many educational opportunities for students through various internships and work study programs. Hilltop has also provided gardening classes for adults and volunteer opportunities. Visitors are always welcome at Hilltop to tour our demonstration gardens, enjoy nature or find a good idea for their garden.

Excellent place. The people who work and volunteer here are genuine and kind. The gardens are interesting and beautiful. Great classes for all ages: campus garden initiative for young adults, junior master gardener for older kids, family garden program for young kids. I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys the outdoors!
