Are you an avid coffee drinker? If you’re like most enthusiasts who brew coffee beans everyday, you’re also probably throwing away pounds of grounds each month.
Did you know that you can use these grounds in the garden?
This video from One Yard Revolution talks about how you can turn coffee grounds into good use. Coffee contains nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium – the same minerals found in fertilizer. Aside from that, coffee is rich in other minerals too such as magnesium, copper, zinc, manganese, and iron which all helps cultivate plant growth.
Add coffee grounds to your compost pit and garden mulch to increase organic matter in the soil, serve as food to earthworms, and improve soil structure.
If you’re not much of a caffeine-drinker but would like to try out this on your garden, call your local coffee shops and ask for grounds supply. These just end up in the landfill so most coffee shops gladly give coffee grounds away for free.
Remember, when you use coffee grounds, you’re not only nurturing your garden, you’re also helping reduce waste. Everybody wins!
