Since 1990, The Word On The Street has proudly hosted some of the finest talent in Canadian literature. Our 28th festival was one of our best yet. Check out all of the authors, performers, and storytellers below!
Raised on a 850 acre farm in Saskatchewan, Lara Kelly has been learning how to grow vegetables since birth. She worked on her parents’ organic and biodynamic farm all throughout her childhood and teenage years and went back as an adult to complete her internship. She later went on to start her own organic market garden business and was running a 100-person CSA member-based farm for the past few years. After she and her husband decided they preferred raising their children in Toronto, she sold her farm business and now runs a veggie garden consultation business in Toronto. Lara also does guest speaker events and teaches workshops on urban veggie growing. Her clients in Toronto are people who want to learn and maintain their own edible vegetable gardens.
