Naijha Wright and Greg Brown are parents of a 3 year old vegan daughter, co-owners of The Land of Kush – a vegan soul-food restaurant located in Baltimore, MD. Naijha is the co-founder and organizer of the annual Vegan SoulFest in Baltimore, MD – an annual vegan festival catered to Baltimore’s inner city communities. Brenda Sanders is the other co-founder and organizer.
Naijha is also Director of Marketing for The Land Of Kush, and through her strategic marketing initiatives, the restaurant experienced exponential growth within four years of opening. She develops relationships and collaborates with local businesses, non-profit organizations, schools and churches who share in the mission of promoting dietary, ethical, or environmental veganism. Greg is also the chef at The Land Of Kush – a position which he fell into it by necessity. After he became vegetarian in the late 90’s, he started to teach himself how to cook with the new and exciting foods that he discovered. He always had the vision to own a restaurant that catered to the health conscious crowd, so he decided to put together a business plan and thus, The Land of Kush was born!
