My Garden Loves Starbucks!


As I have been seeking to nurture my baby garden, I have begun composting and have been adding my used coffee grounds. As my dear Mike headed to Atlanta last week, he pulled off to grab a cup of Joe at Starbucks and was thrilled to find "grounds for my garden"! They had a basket in front of the shop filled with complimentary grounds for local gardeners...the bag my husband picked up for me was 6 pounds!

Support your local Starbucks' attempt to be mindful of their waste, to enrich our gardens, and for doing it for free!

This is SO cool. I hope more restaurants and coffee shops consider taking similar steps. Why put in the landfills what can nurture the land?

Oh my gosh, how cool is that? I'll see if any of ours do the same thing. Thanks girl! Love from Auntie to the little ones!
