Lewellyn is a journalist by trade and a farmer by choice. She has a passion for growing everything from wheat and canola to a vegetable garden, chickens, and two farm kids. Lewellyn worked as a reporter and anchor at CKX television in Brandon, Manitoba before turning her focus to farming alongside her husband, but writing continues to be her passion. Her new book Rooted is a prescriptive memoir that tells the story of her own struggles with anxiety and depression and offers tips on how to stay small town strong when things get tough. Mental health is one of the biggest threats to rural communities, and Lewellyn has made it her life’s work to start more discussions around this topic, advocating for agriculture, women, and mental health.
