The Powell River Farmers’ Institute is a non‐profit society working to advance farming in the Powell River Regional District.
In 1915, 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.
