Coffee compost for jittery worms
|Happy plants. Nervous worms.|
|Coffee grounds, compost & composted manure -- Mmmmm!|
Tom's another Buffalo gardener who's been slowly eliminating the grass from his good-sized urban yard. (It's a trend here). He even quotes GardenRant / GardeningWhileIntoxicated's Elizabeth - "Grass is nothing but a big fat pain in the ass." I can just hear those carefully-rendered words spouting mellifluously from her.
|Elimination of grass was the goal -- no more mowing!|
Other local coffee houses have plans for their used coffee grounds. Cafe Aroma on Bidwell Parkway donates their grounds to the Massachusetts Avenue Project; Sweetness 7 on Grant & Lafayette sends theirs across the street to the Grassroots Gardens greenhouse. Starbucks on Elmwood said that they bag their coffee grounds and are happy to reserve a bag for any gardener who asks. Do coffee houses in your area do anything useful with their grounds that you know of?
