Starbucks isn't just about coffee. As part of their Shared Planet campaign they are also practicing recycling to help the environment by giving away free coffee grounds. I have been diligent since last year whenever I chanced upon a Starbucks branch, I ask for a bag to take home and my family has caught the habit too. Wouldn’t it be lovely to compliment your present or new garden with coffee grounds?
Coffee grounds can provide a valuable source of nutrition for your garden if used properly. You just add the “green” material as a side dressing to nitrogen-loving plants, including most perennials and allium plants. Then balance it with “brown” materials like leaves or dried grass.
You can also combine the coffee grounds to your compost. Just use the coffee grounds within two to three weeks of brewing for maximum nutritional value.
