About us

In 1915, one hundred years ago this year, thirty-two farmers in the Powell River area founded a Farmers’ Institute “to improve conditions of rural life so that settlement may be permanent and prosperous.” This remains our goal today. We welcome you to explore our web-site, attend meetings and special events, and network with us.
