It was mid-afternoon at the Folk School and I heard crowing in the near distance. I followed the sound and discovered its source.
A rooster and his lady friends were enjoying the sunshine near the vegetable gardens.
Nearby, was JCCFS Gardener & Volunteer Coordinator, Joe Baumgartner. I discovered Joe named our rooster, Edward, after a former Work Study. He also named Edward the Rooster’s four friends:
Maryilyn, who is an Australorp
Margaret, is a Rhode Island Red
Florence (“Flo” to her friends) is an Ameraucana
And we’re just not sure about Flossie 🙂
Take a stroll up by the vegetable gardens and you might see Edward and his friends too.
Move in a little closer.
Reach out and make some new friends at the Folk School.
While you’re here, we hope you will stop by the Craft Shop too.
We also have a crowing rooster…
and a few chickens you might want to take home with you 🙂
