About Sabrina Hahn

Sabrina Hahn is a whole lot of Hort with Heart – a master gardener, horticultural professional, award winning radio presenter, podcaster and writer. She has passion for the creation of sustainable landscapes that make cities more liveable. Her aim is to educate listeners in the importance of creating biodiversity in their own backyards. She believes that the diminishing green spaces in urban areas are making our cities sterile hot spots. Urban gardens play a vital role in returning biodiversity into our cities and offering people a space for physical and mental wellbeing.

Sabrina has shared her knowledge and passion for green spaces on ABC radio for 27 years, being one of the earliest pioneers to promote sustainable gardening practices in the media. She is a highly entertaining public speaker, and MC, she writes a twice-weekly gardening column in The West Australian, and also contributes articles for Gardening Australia and Organic Gardener.

Her extensive knowledge on gardening comes from a scientific background of horticulture, soil science, entomology and botany. Sabrina has been awarded a lifetime membership from the Nursery and Garden Industry of Western Australia and nominated for Australian of the Year for her services to the industry.

Sabrina also works as a tour guide with Australians Studying Abroad since 2008 and has led numerous garden tours for ASA to Italy, France and Spain, Morocco and England. Sabrina has a great passion for plants, gardens and their place in the greater landscape. She explores the relationship between landscape and people’s sense of belonging. Sabrina’s love of travel to other Mediterranean climates allows her to share her knowledge of gardening in Western Australia with fellow gardening enthusiasts and translate its place in the Australian landscape.

Sabrina has worked extensively for the past decade in remote Aboriginal communities in the Kimberley developing edible gardens so that Aboriginal people have greater access to healthy food and become more sustainable. She believes the availability of healthy, fresh food will have a positive impact on the health of children in remote areas where fresh vegetables are a luxury. She has formed friendships with women elders in communities to enable them to propagate their own bush tucker and bush medicine plants so that their knowledge is passed on the next generation.

Sabrina is also a published author with three books under her belt – Sabrina’s Little ABC Book of Gardening, Sabrina’s Juicy Little Book of citrus and Dirty Deeds all published through Fremantle Press.
