Salt Harvesting in the East Neuk

Two years ago, after 18 years living and working away, Darren Peattie brought his family home to St Monans. On a family walk at the St Monans salt pans he was struck by an idea to bring salt harvesting back to the East Neuk. Darren will talk us through the history of salt harvesting in the East Neuk, and how he is making his dream of revitalising the industry into a reality with the East Neuk Salt Company. He will also outline the project to reconstruct salt pan house number 9, creating a heritage visitor attraction in St Monans.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!
