The Vegan SoulFest A Resounding Success - Heru-Ka Anu

Vegan SoulFest Volunteers Naijha Wright and Gregory Brown

The first ever Vegan SoulFest was held to overwhelming success in Baltimore, Maryland. Looking for the next thing to do Naijha Wright and Name partnered on the idea of the Vegan SoulFest, an event that would encapsulate what they believed in and galvanize force among others to give a bigger life to them.

From their initial announcemetn of the Vegan SoulFest the responses were of excitement and commitment. In short order the sponsorship and vendor support made the event and inevitable success even before the advertising and publicity to the larger community had begun.    Read The Story - Click Here

The Natural Products Expo East 2014... In Baltimore MD - Heru-Ka Anu

The Natural Products Expo East had to be one of the greatest shows on earth. I attended two of the four day event and was completely overwhelmed with the overall presentation -the workshops, lecture presentations, product sampling and demonstrations.

The atmosphere was filled with a wonderful buzzing of exhibitors busying themselves greeting, making presentations, networking, and conducting sales. It was a most beautiful business experience to witness. The sheer number of exhibitors gathered under one roof was not unlike visiting a small town. Read the Story - Click Here

The Demise of BSW Natural Products Company - Heru-Ka Anu

Botanical Skin Works

Botanical Skin Works (BSW), of Baltimore, Maryland manufactured natural hair and skincare products. However they were not just any company. Of significance was the unique background of its founding and managing women - Sharon Kinnier the outstanding chemist, whose talent propelled her own company but was sought after by numerous other companies to formulate for them as well; and Dr. Nana Anu a leading holistic doctor whose knowledge and experience with the medical use and benefits of natural products was second to none. Another unique factor being that they both are African American – a rarity in the natural products industry. Through their combined scientific knowledge they created an excellent line of hair and skincare products that customers were completely satisfied with. Which of course begs the question, “Why didn’t the company Botanical Skin Works survive?”

Holistic Care

Instructor from Embrace Yoga DC guides children and adults through the joys and benefits of yoga. Children and yoga is such a natural mesh. To see it in action is very comforting.

Natural Products

Karmalades Natural Products exhibit at the Green Festival - "Household Cleaners With A Conscious" is what we all can use. It was good to see products that are safe to use, and in balance or harmony with the environment, especially our home environment.

Healthy LifeStyle

Heru-Ka Anu in the Elf Car - the "Solar-Electric Trike". Personally, I'm not quite sure how this is to be used on the road; however, I can see it being used to power around the neighborhood.

The VeganSoul Festival

The VeganSoul Fest was a success if gauging by the apparent numbers of people. I found it to be a nice size and just large enough to for me to visit each vendor and exhibit. There were a good number of new vendors/exhibitors... I found the atmosphere and overall tone of the event to be rather lively, I guess as it should be when we are being called to celebrate life. Though I have many good things to say about the even, my few critques are that it was lacking in substantial signage to let you know parts of the events, and where they were, were indoors; also I believe a separation of the types of vendor/exhibitors would have resulted in more effective presentations - i.e. separating food vendors, from information vendors, from retail vendors. Hopefully, they will consider these factors next time.

Saturday - Oct 25, 2014

I attended the Vegan SoulFest today. By my estimates it was an outstanding success. Look for my write up on it later this week.

Saturday - Oct 25, 2014

Yeah, today we launched the DCNatural Blog... A milestone. I tell you I am excited at the way in which this site is developing. Slowly but surely the vision is coming into fruition; even I am seeing more than imagined.

Later today I will visit the Vegan SoulFest; and, of course I look forward to writing something about it here.
