Is home a building that you occupy for a lifetime, is it somewhere your heartis or is it simply where you lay your hat? How do we put down roots, and how deep do they need to grow to make a place feel like home? Years ago, like so many of the Black diaspora, Marchelle Farrell left behind the pristine beaches and emerald hills of Trinidad. She explores creating a home and garden that reflects her roots and her new identity in her book Uprooting which has won the Nan Shepherd Prize for nature writing. Nancy Campbell received the RGS Ness Award for her books on life in the Arctic, but she discovered a community closer to home when she restored an old caravan, the first home she has ever owned, and moved it onto a neglected strip of woodland between a canal and railway. Nancy’s memoir Thunderstone describes how these wild surroundings have brought her solace and hope after the losses of lockdown. Both reveal surprising answers to the question: what is home?
