Coffee Grounds For Composting Are Back

We paused at the beginning of of the pandemic but we're back! Used coffee grounds will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays in our Jamaica Plain store for you to pick up (while supplies last) to use in your gardens or compost piles. Set up on table near the door, come in and grab one and try a coffee while you're at it!

It’s great for your garden:

Adding coffee grounds to your soil helps with drainage, water retention, and aeration and decreases how much you need to depend on chemical fertilizers (more info will be available on our website about how to use it), so why not - let’s make our neighborhoods more beautiful!

Put it in yiour composting pile:
Coffee grounds are considered a green compost material (food scraps, grass clippings, coffee grounds) so mix it with brown compost material (newspaper, dry leaves, etc).
