Local business owner Dana Beavers knows a lot about people overcoming obstacles and personal transformations. This year, she decided to start a project that would show just how beautiful transformation can be. Beavers went to Mobile in the spring and purchased 165 milkweed plants, hoping to start a monarch butterfly farm on the patio of her community outreach center, “The Loft.”
