The Votes Are Counted

Let fundraising commence! We’re excited to announce that Springfield Community Gardens is the charity of choice for the 2016 Queen City Beard and Moustache Federation Competition.

Springfield Community Gardens distributed more than 60,000 pounds of healthy, locally grown produce to families in need last year, worked to develop communities and teach cooking and gardening skills. We’re excited to help!

We’d like to thank every charity that sent in a proposal, especially our other two finalists, the Haven of the Ozarks and Ozarks Counseling Center. We’ll be building fences at the Haven on 10/24, for anyone able to join us.

The Finalists Are Announced!
