Reminder: General Garden Meeting 4/12 and Upcoming Gardening/Earth Week Events

Hello gardeners!

This is just a quick reminder of our General Garden Meeting TOMORROW, Thursday, April 12 from 5:30-6:30 in the Emerging Technology Center conference room (3rd floor) at JH Eastern building. Staff, faculty, students, community members – all are welcome! We can’t wait to hear your ideas for how we can best improve on our communication and coordination efforts among all of you!

In regards to volunteer days this weekend, we have TWO opportunities again this week (both on Saturday):

  • 11 a.m. – 1 p.m (students only?) at the CSC garden – This will be a site for the spring mini President’s Day of Service, organized by the JHU Center for Social Concern and the Student Advocacy Board. Sign up at if you’re interested.
  • 1 p.m. – 3ish p.m. (open to ALL!) at Blue Jay’s Perch. This is a general volunteer workday, and all are welcome of any age! Please come out if you can!

In addition, in case you haven’t heard, next week is EARTH WEEK at Hopkins. BJP is participating in a few events directly, including 2 guided garden tours (on 4/20 and 4/21) and a booth at Spring Fair “Healthy Planet Festival.” You may also be interested in Real Food Hopkins’ screening of the film Cafeteria Man, which will be followed by a guest panel featuring local “organic” farmer Joan Norman, Cafeteria Man co-producer and director Richard Chisolm, and Greg Strella, from Great Kids Farm. Visit for more info.

Thank you all and hope to see you tomorrow!
