Coastal Foraging

Craig takes walks along the coasts of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire and finds ingredients to cook up a feast right there and then – proving there are rich culinary pickings on the beach, from mussels to plants and crabs.

Classic Course

This is our standard course where we discover sea vegetables and shellfish, learn about the seashore environment, then forage and learn about the wonderful sea life that West Wales is renowned for.

Extreme Low Tide Course

In addition to the Classic Course, because the tidal range is more extensive, much more of the lower shore is exposed, leading to the potential of discovering deep-water species.

 

Craig Evans:

“Since learning to read I have actively sought out all information I could gather on the coastal wildlife and environment”

“Since growing up in the semi-rural Amman Valley on the slopes of the Black Mountains of carmarthenshire, from a very young age I was taught how to pick wild foods such as mushrooms, wimberries (bilberries), blackberries, tickle trout and accompany my father to the coast to collect cockles.”

“Following my 12 years as an RAF aircraft engineer, 17 years working for a major high street bank and having very recently sold my woodland after 8 years of management, I am now embarking on a career to share my knowledge and passion with the wider world.”

“Throughout my various careers, I have continued researching hidden locations and had great joy in thoroughly learning about our great coast line in West Wales. For a great number of years, I have kept a large salt water aquarium where I have studied the behaviour of our vastly varied sea life.”

“My hope for the future is to educate the wider world about our fantastic coastal environment and promote it’s conservation, and to inspire people to pass on any knowledge gained down through future generations. Drawing people to the area will also, hopefully, promote the local area and benefit the local communities.”
