ATASCADERO — Former San Benito Elementary Principal Joanne Rogoff, who retired this year, gave a report to the Atascadero Unified School District board of directors at a meeting last week and recognized the efforts of students and volunteers who have helped bring the San Benito school garden back to life.
Rogoff says that some improvements had been completed at the garden, but nothing was growing in it when sixth grade San Benito teacher Courtney Speck expressed an interest in working to bring life back to the garden in the fall of 2013. Speck enlisted the help of her husband’s grandfather, Atascadero resident Tom Taylor, who had previously worked to help restore the school garden at Virginia Peterson Elementary School in Paso Robles.
