Ground to GroundGround to Ground is a city-wide campaign that diverts nutrient-rich coffee grounds from the landfill and puts them back to work in our yards, farms, and gardens. Coffee grounds are a gentle, mildly acidic, “green” source of nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, and important micronutrients – incorporate them directly into garden soil, into compost, or sprinkle on lawn. All Ground to Ground locations offer free grounds to community members in 4-gallon buckets or disposable bags. Take as many buckets of grounds as you like (feel free to take all of them from any location), and then RINSE the buckets and RETURN them within a couple days.
