Heading to south west Wales any time soon? Those that are in for a treat of the foraging kind. Coastal Foraging has launched recently, which offers visitors a hands on experience foraging for wild food along the Welsh shoreline.

Discover how to find prawns, mussels, cockles, wild samphire, sea anemones and scarlet elf cup mushrooms amongst the rocky, beautiful Carmarthenshire coastline with a former banker turned commercial woodland manager.

Owner Craig Evens has a passion for geology, conservation and the history of his local area and imbibes a sense of all these things while out foraging amongst rock pools, tidal mudflats and estuaries for the delicious wild delights.

This autumn you can go one step further with the Extreme Low Tide course, which makes the most of the occasional low tide throughout the month and can throw up  deep-water species such as edible spider crabs, prawns, lobsters and (if really lucky) a native octopus.

Coastal foraging is the perfect introduction to the world of wild food and Evens keeps it affordable with free experiences to all children under 17 and a £10 refund for anyone coming via public transport.
