Connecting gardens, groups and growers to create a more resilient food future in Darebin

Darebin ‘Café to Garden’ Program diverts coffee grounds from landfill

The ‘Café to Garden’ program enables residents to pick up coffee grounds from participating Darebin businesses to take home and add to home compost and worm farms.

Some of these businesses are happy for customers/residents to pick up other organic food waste, and at Red Bean Coffee you can pick up coffee husks and hessian bags as well as coffee grounds.
