Uprooting is the story of Marchelle Farrell’s journey, as a Black Caribbean immigrant to the UK, of seeking belonging in an English country garden. Seeking grounding in the plants around her, Marchelle begins to turn the lens of her psychoanalytic training on herself and what this new place seems to offer. As the seasons change, this personal reckoning begins to find resonance with the wider cultural tumult, from a global racial uprising, to the ever-present effects of the climate crisis. And as these synchronicities pull together the threads of her experience – a tropical childhood in Trinidad and a current life in England; the lives of both the Caribbean and British ancestors who came before; immediate family and the wider community – she begins to weave a new tapestry of meaning from the blossoms of the places she has called home. Uprooting asks us to reconsider our relationships to one another and to the living world of which we are part.
