Jun 6, 2022

Biruk Sahle is the no-dig gardener behind Hahu Organics: an initiative that feeds 40+ families from a small plot of land in Helens Bay Walled Garden. 
By flipping modern agriculture on its head, Biruk and his family have been able to create a sustainable and profitable business growing vegetables in the 21st Century without pesticides, subsidies, heavy machinery or debt — all while regenerating the land he farms and restoring biodiversity back to the area.
In today’s episode we talk about:
  • His back to the future approach to farming
  • What the heck a ‘no-dig’ philosophy is
  • Going deep instead of going wide
  • Finding customers before developing a product
  • Permaculture and why it matters
  • And the power of embracing each moment as it comes. 
Check it out.
