The Sunflower Fence project
Dr. Patricia Hart, veterinarian at Southport Veterinary Center, does more for her community than just care for pets.
Four years ago, Dr. Hart started what she calls the “Sunflower Fence,” an urban-rejuvenation project, across from her clinic on the Post Road. The idea stemmed from her love for gardens and an ill friend who loved sunflowers. The flowers naturally clean the soil, don’t transmit impurities onto their seeds, and are safe and beneficial for birds and bees.
