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.
Membership costs $20. Please send a message via the contact page to the Membership Coordinator (Kathy Rebane) or secretary (Cindy Demeester), or show up at any meeting (see the Events Page for dates and locations).
