Chair:  Rhiannon Hardiman is a Policy Lead at the Office  of the Future Generations Commissioner for Wales supporting public bodies to take action to address the climate and biodiversity emergencies.

Carwyn Graves is a writer, food historian and naturalist whose new book Tir: The Story of the Welsh Landscape was written in part in response to the rewilding agenda.

Sue Pritchard is the CEO of the Food, Farming and Countryside  Commission, a UK-wide  independent charity set up in 2017 to help shape the future of food and farming, land use and the countryside. 

Josh Morgan is taking a radical approach to dairying on the 4th generation family-farm just outside Abergavenny. Milking Jersey cows once a day and selling high quality milk direct to local customers.

Carwyn will be signing copies of his book after the event at the Book-ish stand by the Dome. Book-ish is the Festival’s award-winning book partner.
