Leaders, Lecturers & Tour Managers

Sabrina Hahn

Sabrina first joined ASA in 2008 and leads garden tours to Italy, France, Spain, Morocco, the UK, Japan, Tasmania and Western Australia. She first studied Horticulture at TAFE, and then went on to graduate with degrees in Applied Science and Social Science. She has been the ABC gardening talkback expert in Western Australia since 1985 and can be heard on ABC Radio on Saturday mornings on her show ‘Roots and Shoots’ with co-presenter Christine Layton (9.00AM Australia Western Standard Time).

Sabrina also writes a weekly column in the West Australian newspaper on all things green, manages a landscaping business, and gives public lectures to a number of universities, government and private organisations. One of her great passions is her work with the philanthropic organisation, EON, in remote Aboriginal communities in the Kimberley, setting up edible gardens to ensure children have access to fresh fruit and vegetables. Her latest venture is ‘Sabrina’s Dirty Deeds Podcast’ which includes practical advice and interviews with Australian and International horticulturalists, ecologists and innovative gardeners.
