Marchelle Farrell

Born in Trinidad and Tobago, Marchelle has spent the last twenty years attempting to become hardy here in the UK. She has trained and worked as a consultant psychiatrist and psychotherapist, and is deeply curious about the relationships between our external landscapes and internal ones, the patterns that are reenacted in the human relationship with the land, and how they might be changed. When not neglecting it for the care of her young children or her work in the community, Marchelle spends much of her time getting to know her country garden in Somerset, and writing about the things the garden teaches her about herself. ​Her debut memoir, Uprooting, won the 2021 Nan Shepherd Prize for nature writing, and was published by Canongate in August 2023
