The Blue Jay’s Perch at Johns Hopkins Eastern is a space for Johns Hopkins students, faculty, staff and community members to learn, teach, and practice safe and environmentally sustainable food production methods. It is place for building long-term and meaningful relationships within the Johns Hopkins community and with residents in the city of Baltimore.
