Each year MDCB hosts an annual meeting to share the good works of the previous year and a vision for the coming season. In 2019, we hosted our annual meeting at The Guardian Brewery and had Minnetrista curator, Jessica Jenkins speak on the rich history of Muncie and urban gardens.
With the annual meeting comes the Oscar Awards. Envisioned in 2010, Oscars are given to those individuals and organizations in our community that exemplify “beautification”. This can be, but not limited to, volunteer service, taking care of property – home or business, managing a median, bringing awareness to a critical environmental need, artistic pursuits that enhance our community, and building or creating sustainable infrastructure. We accept nominations year round, with awards typically being decided on by the Board in the early spring to be given at our annual meeting in March or April.
