About Verity Bachmann

By day I am a teacher at a public school in Cape Town, South Africa.

I grew up in a household where sustainability and environmental issiues were always hot topics of discussion, however, it was only after seeing Geoff Lawton's Greening the Desert-video that I was totally inspired to explore and learn to practice Permaculture.

Through working with inner-city teenagers I constantly become more and more aware of the fact that the basic life skills (like growing your own food or sourcing clean drinking water) our youth needs are NOT being tought in government curriculums all over the world.

My main interest in permaculture is in exploring and (perhaps one day) developing learning programs that are suitable for our national curriculum. I sincerely hope I live to see the day that permaculture - or at least some form of sustainability studies will be compulsury aspects of every school curriculum!
