Arlene Ferguson Internship at Hilltop Gardens
Rachna Chaudhari, 2015-2016 Ferguson Intern
Rachna Chaudhari is the new Ferguson Intern. Her internship will take place at the Hilltop Garden and Nature Center during the spring 2016 semester. She also earned the 2015 Howard W. Clark Scholarship that is given to students interested in botany, soil building, and plant breeding. Plants and genetics have always interested Rachna, who conducted science experiments using plant hormones while still in high school. She volunteers with the Students Producing Organics Under the Sun (SPROUTS) Community Garden, which brings IU students and other Bloomington residents together to learn about the process of organic food production, and serves as a WonderLab Museum Discovery Coach. In 2014, Rachna ran a booth hosted by WonderLab at Hilltop Garden’s BugFest.
