Ocean Gardening at Câr-Y-Môr

Câr-Y-Môr, which translates to “For the Love of the Sea,” is Wales’ first regenerative seaweed and shellfish farm. A community-owned business, based in St. David’s in Pembrokeshire, Câr-Y- Môr’s purpose is to improve the coastal environment, as well as the well being of the local community through job creation, supply of fresh local seafood and environmental restoration.

The people at Câr-Y-Môr, say that they want to make a difference in the world around them. They refer to it not so much as an ocean farm, but more of an ocean garden.

The 2022 Earthshot Prize Winner, Notpla — producers of plastic-free packaging made from seaweed and plants — are a key investor in Câr-Y-Môr.
