Used coffee grounds are a great free resource to put to work in your garden. They enrich the soil with nitrogen and other minerals, improve soil structure, and increase organic matter in the soil. We use them in compost, vermicompost, and as a mulch. Why not give them a try in your garden? One Yard Revolution is all about growing a lot of food on a little land using sustainable organic methods, while keeping costs and labor at a minimum. Emphasis is placed on improving soil quality with compost, mulch, and compost tea. No store-bought fertilizers, soil amendments, pesticides, compost activators, etc. are used.

    I find myself referencing your videos often. Thank you for posting. Can you use coffee grounds on potted plants?

    I started my first real compost pile this summer. I am using a tumbler a friend gave me. Thought I did my greens and browns right but I checked it the other day and I have a tumbler full of dirt balls. What's going on with my mix? Did something wrong just not sure what. Can you help?

    When you boil water for noodles,eggs whatever take it outside and pour it in the cracks in your driveway and the weeds will be gone in no time!! I think it kills the seeds too because nothing grows back for awhile. free cheap an does not hurt the Earth at all unless you are growing in that crack.

    my local Starbucks has a compost bin and compostible plastic bags for it's used grounds.
    They make ~100lbs /day, so good on them! I think they encourage you to pick up.

    I started a compost collection at work. That is a good place to collect because you don't have to go out of your way and the stuff is already getting thrown away. People in general like being eco friendly too.

    Funny thing about composting is that around here, every non-sealed compost automatically becomes a worm compost, they just crawl in…

    I save the white paper from my class. It composts quickly.

    Is it ok to add coffee grounds that have developed a white mold?

    I pick up used coffee grounds from the local Starbucks. I spread it over the ground, along with my compost where I plant my garden, then use my rototiller to mix it all together.

    I live off grid and me and my wife save all of our feces and urine every winter to be used in our garden. Amazing results and the tomatoes won best taste at our local farmers market last summer.

    Didn't mention one of the best compost ingredients – human urine!.  Loaded with Nitrogen which aid in the breakdown of other compost material.  Save your pee in a jug and pour on your compost pile.  Water the stem of tomato's with water diluted urine and watch it grown.  It works for my garden.  People have been using urine for centuries but we've become so sterile that the younger generation are ignorant of its benefit.  Back to basics boys and girls.  Its cheap, effective and believe it or not – very clean.  Its the perception of urine that throws most people off but for those with experience its a great way to naturally fertilize your garden and help in the process of composting.
