Maring-Hunt Community Garden
In 2017, Muncie Public Library celebrated the grand opening of the Gateway to Gardening Pavilion at Maring-Hunt Library, a partnership with Ball State University. The project included neighborhood input sessions (charrettes) design concepts, and finally, the construction of a beautiful pavilion to be enjoyed by the community! The project was made possible by a BSU Immersive Learning Project grant, and was designed and built by BSU students and their faculty mentor, Dr. Pam Harwood.
The Gateway to Gardening Pavilions at Maring-Hunt Library now includes a Kitchen Pavilion, Learning/Market Pavilion, Reading Nook, Nature Play Pockets, a Sand Play Pocket, Bio-Swale with Native Indiana Plants, and Public/Private Gardens.
