Grounds for Your Garden - Freebies from Starbucks!

Look what I got for FREE from Starbucks yesterday!


Two FREE 5 lb bags of Starbucks coffee...not for me, but for my garden.

"Grounds for Your Garden" started back in 1995 as a way to reduce the amount of waste of used coffee grounds put in landfills and to provide you FREE nitrogen-rich composting material!

If you have a garden or would love to liven up your planting beds, spare the trip to Home Depot (and a larger dent in your bank account) and go to your local Starbucks. Call ahead though, these babies to go fast!

  1. I actually worked at Starbucks for a couple years and I was surprised how many people did not know about doing this for their gardens!!

    I'm so glad that you do this!

  3. I knew that they did this, but I've never had a garden. I am getting ready to start one (a little late in the season but maybe I'll get good fall crops?). I think I'll see if our local Starbucks have some. I didn't really know how to use them either. LOL. I'm very new to gardening. :)

  4. I'd like to have some for my garden, but the closest Starbucks is 3 hours away!
