Welcome To The Powell River Farmers’ Agricultural Institute
Ours is a Non-Profit organization dedicated to the support of regional agriculture, rural farming and urban food security. We sponsor the Fall Fair in an effort to unite people of all ages and interests in a common forum offering a fun filled environment in which to learn, exchange ideas, and discover skills not seen every day.
The volunteers and participants work long and hard throughout the year growing, nurturing, creating and finally presenting their craft whether in the form of fresh vegetables, homemade preserves, fresh dairy or poultry products or the best horse in the show.
Our crafters are some of the best, taking local supplies and turning them into family heirlooms. Many people you will see and meet have become masters in dying trades such as raw wool processing, spinning and weaving; wood turning and carving; and the natural preservation of food for winter consumption
The Association’s Board and our members would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation to join with us to help develop programs for all ages in many varied topics. Whether you are an apartment dweller who would like to grow herbs for cooking, a person interested in natural soap making or someone who would just like to help out when and where needed we want to hear from you.
Farmers of all types, rabbit raisers to carrot growers we would love to connect and foster lasting relations. Please check out our new and still incomplete but growing web site at: Agriculture Powell River. You may contact us by

“The decisions we make about land in this province must be made without fear or favour to special interests, well-financed threats or overly enthusiastic developers who don’t see or who have never looked at, and possibly haven’t given consideration to the needs of future generations. The Agricultural Land Commission, in order to protect the reserve, must remain not just independent; but province-wide, it must be independent of government.” (Private Member’s Statement, Nicholas Simons, MLA Powell River-Sunshine Coast, March 3, 2014).
