Sofia Bertoloni-Meli, 9, navigated her wheelbarrow through the garden plots of IUB's Hilltop Garden and Nature Center while 10-year-olds Andy Capshew (background, photo at right) and Stewart McLelland searched for beans among the corn, squash and morning glories. The program was co-founded in 1948 by the late IUB botany professor Barbara Shalucha. Autumn events: a bulb and perennial sale, noon-5 p.m. Sept. 19; The Great Pumpkin Launch, at noon on Nov. 6. Elsewhere this summer, the home of IU’s first president got some sprucing up and some tender loving care.
