Cultivating Change – The Book
Caro Feely’s new book Cultivating Change, a combination of travel writing, nature writing and memoir, releases 15 June 2023. It explores climate change, marriage, organic farming, biodiversity, yoga and personal awakening with a background of vineyards and wine. Secondary themes include raising teenagers as a working mother, transitioning to the empty nest and gastronomy. The book includes voyages in France, South Africa, Ireland, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom.
What will it take to change? Can we revive our relationship with the earth? And with each other?
‘There are two perfect shady spots where I stop to talk about biodiversity on our organic farm visits. The oak trees there seem to know me. When I touch their leaves, it feels different to how it feels with other oaks.’
But along with the joy and magic of working with nature come the risks – frost, hail, heatwaves. Cultivating Change follows the journey of Caro and Sean as they regenerate their vineyard in France and rewrite their love story in the face of climate change. Cultivating Change explores marriage and family life, biodiversity, yoga, and how to change.
Join Caro as she explores the climate crisis, marriage and biodiversity, in this powerful new memoir.

‘I have heard it said that time changes things, but sometimes you have to change them yourself. In Cultivating Change Caro Feely confronts both sides of this saying, adapting to the effects of time on family and relationships, while simultaneous seeking to shape the world – especially the wine world – to meet the challenges of the future. Insightful and inspiring.’ Mike Veseth, The Wine Economist
‘A thoroughly enjoyable read and a wake-up call about how our actions affect our planet.’ Tora Shand
