Collecting Coffee Grounds for the Garden
Ground to Ground now has some genuine marketing material, with our brochure finding a way into cafes and offices, and is available in soft copy for all you good people.
This is a hi resolution Ground to Ground Brochure file (approx 3MB), so will look great if printed from your home or office, or from a professional printer.
Here is the PDF link for the Ground to Ground flyer brochure, and I’ve included the screen shots below to give you an idea of what is in the file, and all the words have been typed out below if you just want to use them.
I am also getting some Ground to Ground magnets made, and this will carry the ground to ground logo along with the web address – groundtoground.org
Thank you all for your ongoing support and help. This is a good thing to be doing.

Making A Difference One Latte At A Time
Sometimes it is hard to know how to make a difference. The coffee you are now drinking helps you make one.
Every time you have an espresso coffee, about 20 grams of grounds are left over, and in most cases is thrown into the bin.
But did you know your plants love coffee as much as you do?
Used coffee grounds are known to keep away snails, slugs, ants and cats.
They assist to create a rich luscious soil that will attract many Earth Worms.
Coffee Grounds are relatively high in Nitrogen, an essential nutrient for plant growth.
When added to your compost, Coffee Grounds will raise those internal temperatures, which speeds up decomposition, and the end result will be beautiful, black, rich compost.
They are also great when added straight onto the garden, just dig them into the soil a little.
Congratulations, you are making a difference.
