“Return to the Olive Farm” is the sequel to “The Olive Farm: A Memoir of Life, Love, and Olive Oil in the South of France” by Carol Drinkwater. There is no Kindle version available on Amazon and it is out of stock in Kinokuniya too. A friend of mine bought it for me online at Book Depository and he gifted it to me as my birthday present.
In this book, Carol Drinkwater returns to her farm, Apassionata, after 16 months of solo-travelling. She discovered that the pesticide used to kill the olive fruit fly, Bactrocera oleae, is detrimental to bees and the environment. She sets out to find an environmentally-friendly alternative and eventually they (Carol and her husband, Michael) turns their farm bio en conversion.
Carol Drinkwater reminds us that we should do our part in protecting our planet by using her real-life example.
