Terms & Conditions
The new Rural Youth History Team is getting things moving on this important project in 2022.
To research, write and publish a book detailing the history of the Junior Farmers and Rural Youth organisations in Queensland, the earliest days from 1946 until the late 1980’s.
The book will be published as a hard copy, offered for sale and distributed to Libraries throughout Queensland.
It will also be available on line as an e-book.
We need your help. Please, past members send us stories to be part of the book. We are looking for local clubs’ histories and their contributions to local communities. We need photos.
But first we need names, numbers and e-mail addresses of past members who we can contact to ask for them for their stories.
We have found many past members are too modest to tell their stories. Please, if you know someone who might have something to contribute then ‘dob them in’. Send us the their details and we’ll talk to them.
We also need names of members who have made outstanding contributions to their community or wider.
Please e-mail names, stories photos to
Or post to
