We're delighted to welcome George Monbiot to the the Festival.
George Monbiot is an author,
In this much anticipated event, George Monbiot asks 'what if there were a way to stop climate change and end global hunger at the same time?' and offers a breathtaking vision of a new future for food and for humanity.
Drawing on his new book Regenesis, George shares his profoundly hopeful, appetising and exciting vision of food: of revolutionary cultivation and cuisine that could nourish us all and restore our world of wonders.
George Monbiot will be in conversation with Lee Schofield, author of Wild Fell: Fighting for nature on a Lake District hill farm.
Regenesis will be available to purchase at the Festival book store over the Festival weekend.
There will be a book signing straight after the event.
Published by Allen Lane/Penguin.
Regenesis has been longlisted for the Wainwright Prize
'Fascinating and ultimately positive ... a harmonic vision of how changing our relationship to land use, farming and the food that we eat could transform our lives' - Thom Yorke
