DID YOU KNOW; USED COFFEE GROUNDS ARE A GREAT COMPOSTING ADDITIVE? 

Used coffee grounds make a nitrogen-, magnesium- and calcium-rich contribution to the garden. They can also be tossed directly into the garden as mulch or tilled in as a soil amendment, improving soil structure and increasing the availability of potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and copper. Soil testing has shown that coffee grounds provide a relatively pH-neutral effect as they decompose. If scattered onto the surface of the soil, the gritty coffee grounds can serve as an effective slug and snail barrier for susceptible plants. Worms, on the other hand, love coffee grounds! Add about a cup a week into your worm bin for some very happy creepy crawlers and rich

Tip: Limit the coverage to a 1-inch thickness in order to prevent mold from forming.
