1984 Australia & Tasmania
The 1st Permaculture Conference/Convergence was held in the early 1980's, at Rowlands, in New South Wales Australia. It was held during a growth period of Permaculture, and when we still all pretty well knew each other. Like all the Conferences which followed, the Rowlands Conference/Covergence was organized by dedicated volunteers. I can remember travelling down to NSW (I was then living at Nambour, north of Brisbane) with Lea Harrison for a pre-planning meeting.
