Support the SSIFI

In addition to becoming a member, there are several other ways to support the Farmers' Institute:

  • Volunteering either with the Tuesday morning work crew to help repair and maintain the building and grounds OR with the coordinators for the Fall Fair.

  • One of the easiest ways to show your support for the SSI Farmers’ Institute is through the “Save-A-Tape” program at SSI Country Grocer. After making your purchase, place your receipt in Mailbox #57 marked “Island ‘Farmers’ Institute”. The Save-A-Tape boxes are located at the middle exit.

  • Lastly, attending the Fall Fair is a great way to support the community, farmers, vendors, and the Institute. 


Thanks to ongoing community support, we are one of the largest and oldest institutes in British Columbia.
