I drink a lot of fresh ground coffee at home and a great way to reuse the coffee grounds after use is to put them on your garden. They make a good fertilizer and my plants seem to thrive on them.
I even give the grounds away to neighbours as i often have too much just for my own garden. I seem to drink too much coffee.
Comment from Kate
I’m not too sure how you use the grounds on your garden. I assume you just dig them in around your plants or mix it with compost when you are planting.
My neighbour also pours her left over cold tea from her teapot on her plants too. I always wondered why her garden thrived so much better than my own.
Here in the UK allotments are back in fashion, these are community areas where you are allotted a small patch of earth to do with what you will. they are great community areas too and the gardeners like to help each other out as much as they can. Perhaps if you are part of an allotment you could approach a large coffee shop near you and ask for their grounds, which could then be shared out free of charge to everyone on the allotment.
