He has a great understanding of the importance of Real Food for every human. Jimerson is passionate about a vision that fuses technology and simplicity to allow people from any walk of life to grow their own food.
Jimerson resides in West Texas with his 10-year-old twins, fiancée, two cats, dog, 7* rabbits, 6* chickens, and a yearning to escape the desert.

Hailing from the thriving metropolis that is Washoe, Montana (population: 17 as of the 2016 Census), Casey is the newest addition to the TGN Team and is loving every second of it!
Casey attended college at Washington State University before transferring to the University of Montana where she finished her degree with a Major Sociology. She has 15 years of experience working in various sales, customer service, and marketing positions.
In December of 2016 her longtime partner dragged her kicking & screaming out of Big Sky Country to the land of milk n’ honey that is the Willamette Valley of Western Oregon, where they reside on small organic farm with their dog, 2 cats, 2 goats, 6 ducks, and 24 chickens (and counting). When she is not on the losing end of wrestling a goat, tending to plants, or collecting eggs, Casey enjoys hiking, fishing, experimenting in the kitchen. She is excited to be working with the fantastic group of TGN affiliates to spread the message of “Homegrown food on Every Table”!
