Coffee Grounds for the Garden
Gardening season is right around the corner, and so the other day while at the local Starbucks, I noticed that they were giving away free coffee grounds….. used ones of course. The bags are roughly twice as big as a one-pound bag of whole bean coffee. Since they were free, I figured what the heck and grabbed two. I have since turned over some of our garden and worked the grounds into the soil. Now I am no gardener extraordinaire, but I figure that I just finished the cycle of the bean, from its beginning as the fruit of the plant to soil amendment, via the coffee roaster and a portafilter.
If you’re interested in free grounds, check out your local coffee shop and ask, I am sure they’d be happy to get rid of the grounds that they have by giving you some.
