Emily Gogol is the founder and CEO of both Infinite Tree, a hemp cultivation farm, and Grow It From Home, a business selling hemp seedlings and seeds direct to consumers. She has a Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences from University of California, San Francisco. Her love of gardening and passion for science led her to leave San Francisco to open Infinite Tree farm. It was while operating Infinite Tree that Emily started to receive requests for hemp seeds and seedlings from backyard gardeners all over the country. So Grow It From Home was born.
