After retiring as a United Methodist pastor, in 2005 Dan Weaver was called for another mission: creating a garden that would soothe the soul and feed hungry stomachs. His longtime friend and fellow clergyman Mark Pearson talked with him about the idea of a garden for a new medical building he and his osteopathic physician wife Mary, were planning in Kingston.
CRV is currently working with fifth-grade teachers and students at Seabrook Middle School in preparation for the 2021 spring season. Pictured here is one of CRV's volunteers who constructed an eel mop. I thought it was an awesome picture and probably a great Halloween costume!
What is an eel mop? An eel mop is a device designed to catch glass eels and elvers, the early life stages of the American eel, Anguilla rostrata. It mimics eel habitat so they will seek refuge in the nooks and crannies of the mop.
