For the historical record, there were antecedents to the 1993 formation of the Byron Greens, which Tom Tabart states was the beginning of the Greens in this area.
There were wide-ranging discussions involving many people over several years to establish a Tweed-Byron Green organisation in the late 1980s.
I went to three of these meetings.
The first, in a Mullum hall, was without any concrete outcome. The next very well attended gathering was in the Nimbin Town Hall. I facilitated that meeting, and travelled across to Nimbin with Ian Cohen.
The third occurred on a long sweaty day in a country hall near Wollumbin.
These meetings were protracted and involved many people talking about what they thought we should embark upon. All this happened before mid 1990.
These are merely the events I attended. There were others.
