When she bought a dilapidated property overlooking the Bay of Cannes, France, she found 68 400-year-old olive trees on the site. After clearing the land and pressing olives, Carol and her French husband Michel became producers of high-quality olive oil. Her series of memoirs, love stories, and stories about her farm experience (olive farm, olive season, olive harvest and return to olive farm) have become international bestsellers.
Carol’s fascination with olive trees continued into the 17th month, and went to the Mediterranean Sea alone to find the mysterious secrets of olive trees. The resulting travel books “The Road of Olives” and “The Olive Tree” inspired a five-part documentary series called The Road of Olives.
Carol was also invited to cooperate with UNESCO to fund an olive heritage trail around the Mediterranean, with the dual goal of creating peace in the region and respecting the ancient heritage of olive trees.
