The Agricultural History Society of Newfoundland and Labrador

The Agricultural History Society of Newfoundland and Labrador is an association of individuals with an interest in the province's rich agricultural heritage. Since 1986 we have been working to increase public awareness of this history through historical research and writing. We also welcome donations of agricultural documents and images which we deposit in the Archives and Special Collections, Queen Elizabeth II Library, Memorial University. We are interested in expanding our network to include those individuals, museums, and archives who share our interest in the agricultural themes of the province's history.

Some of our projects:

-Identification and recognition of the Century Farmers of this province
-Identification and documentation of root cellars
-Consideration of the interdependence of the fishery and the food production of the outport gardens
-Collecting historical documents about agriculture in collaboration with Memorial University
-Creation of storyboards by which to bring agricultural history to the public

Membership: free

Archive: We deposit our donated documents in the Archives and Special Collections, Queen Elizabeth II Library, Memorial University.
