When you get past the initial view, which looks more like a variety gift shop, the shop opens up and stretches back, revealing a whole new world.
They’ve got gifts for anyone you can imagine buying for. Science, nature, educational, teddy bears, games, toys, books! They’ve got stuff here which you are not creative enough to imagine or guess. That’s ok, since they have it here waiting for you. Come and get it!
This is an original display case. Other's might have just accepted off the shelf (no pun intended) display cases, but not here. They insisted on having display cases as creative as the stuff they have on display.
Cultivate is a truly unique place to take the whole family. There’s lots of interesting things to see, learn about, and entertain kids of all ages. Cultivate is an exemplar of the kind of creativity and passion that can be found in small owner operator variety shops. Please visit their shop and help support their creative efforts without which, the Madison Historic District, Indiana, the United States, and Earth in general quite frankly, would be a much poorer place.
The Cultivate Center is located on the 2nd floor above the Cultivate Shop.
This event space is available for your special program by time-share renting. The facility's capacity is up to 50 people, tables, chairs, coffee pot and refrigerator. The retail store below supports time sharers by offering a personal page space on their website to promote your event or program in addition to other support services which can be arranged. Call and ask them (phone)!
Cultivate is a family owned business, open since 1992. The shop was previously named "The Birdhouse," a wild bird & nature shop. Now they generally promote education, hobbies, and interest in nature and living in peace with the Earth, not against her, as exemplified by one of their slogans, "Grow and cultivate your passions, interests, and knowledge..."
