Jimmy Seely & Joel Hitchcock Tilton

Jim and Joel both grew up in southeastern Wisconsin before moving down to New Orleans. Joel first moved in 2005 to attend Xavier University. Jim came in the summer of 2010 for a change of scenery. After living and working in the city for a couple of years they decided to start a community garden on Delachaise Street, that turned into a larger operation to supply restaurants on Rampart - now home to Paradigm Gardens.
