Craig Evans has a life-long passion for sea life and it’s environment; and a keen interest in all aspects of our localities. Coastal Foraging offer both enjoyable and informative foraging experiences, with the opportunity to cook some of the delights that are discovered on your day on a hand-made Solva Stove (a.k.a. Swedish Candle).
About 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.
Since learning to read I have actively sought out all information I could gather on the coastal wildlife and environment”
Craig grew up in the semi-rural Amman Valley on the slopes of the Black Mountains of Carmarthenshire, from a very young age he 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.
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.”
