Some of the products CHC currently has available includes a salve, oil and lip balm.  They are South Carolina’s only fully verticalized, seed-to-shelf purveyor. They’ve grown from 4 employees to 16 in the last year and are currently aligned with MUSC to further their research on CBD products. Clearly CBD is making more and more news with it’s various uses and we’d like to thank Ms. Thackston for educating us on everything Charleston Hemp is working on!

For our meeting Monday January 7th 2019 we welcome Brian Maynor, Columbia’s own’ lifestyle coach here to make you look and feel great!

“How we look on the outside is a direct reflection of how we feel on the inside, making it impossible to work with one and not the other.” Brian Maynor Over the past decade, Brian Maynor has built a reputation as one of the leading image consultants and style coaches through his signature program, Find Flatter & Flaunt, which helps transform your image; boost confidence and empower you to look and feel your best. Image and the power of how we present ourselves has always been a part of Brian’s life, though it took him awhile to see it. His first job in high school was at a clothing store; he earned a degree in Journalism with a concentration in Broadcasting and went on to work as an attorney. It was that last role where all of the pieces finally came together. As an attorney, Brian managed a federal grant to assist victims of domestic violence both legally and through partnerships with shelters and coalitions. Through working with those survivors he rediscovered the power how we look has on how we feel. Once the grant ended, he had a reignited purpose for helping everyone live the life they’ve always wanted to live instead of feeling resigned to the life they had now, which launched his career as an image consultant. However, it wasn’t long before Brian discovered his clients were searching not just for advice on how to look better, but also for guidance on how to improve the overall quality of their lives. This theme of empowerment has been at the center of his work ever since.

At the November 29th meeting, Evan Aluise of Tiger Corner Farms spoke to the club about their aeroponic container farm located in Summerville, SC. What is aeroponic farming you ask? Well in short it’s a method of farming that’s done in recycled shipping containers. Yes that’s right, shipping containers. IMG_4507

Club speaker organizer Steve Slifer and Evan Aluise from Tiger Corner Farms

By growing plants aeroponically, it reduces the risk for soil borne diseases. Because the roots are exposed to more oxygen, the plants grow faster making aeroponics safer and more efficient. It was a fascinating presentation…we highly recommend checking out their website for more information on how aeroponic farming may be changing the way we think about farming: http://tigercornerfarmsmfg.com. Thanks Evan for the informative presentation! tigercorner-2

Colonel Jay Seward was honored with the 4-way test award on Wednesday, October 18th. He has never missed a meeting even when he is traveling, he still finds a way to attend a Rotary meeting in that area. He has been our clubs secretary for as long as anyone can remember. He fills in as sergeant at arms when needed. He volunteers for everything our club has.  Colonel Seward surely deserves this award. Congratulation on this great honor.
