Gabriel Hahn specializes in small scale agriculture and has been working in organic vegetable production since 2007. Living on permaculture farms in Ecuador and travel in Peru throughout 2009 catalyzed a passion to feed people clean food and build community. Since his return stateside, he has focused on intensive urban vegetable production and addressing food security in low income neighborhoods. He established Seeds of Hope Farm in St Louis, MO at its inception in 2012 and managed the farm and its expansion until December 2016. He completed his Permaculture Design Certificate in 2016. His experience as a farmer, speaker, and teacher, led to apprenticing with his own teachers Peter Bane, Keith Johnson, and Rhonda Baird as a means of tooling others with self-reliance skills. He is currently interning with Brambleberry Farm, an edible perennial nursery, while actively growing veggies, designing, installing, and living in community at Tomato Products Company in Paoli, Indiana.
