Merriam Station Community Garden

Celebrating 28,000+ lbs of Recycled Organics!

October 25 – It’s our anniversary today! In an effort to keep valuable soil-building resources in the neighborhood, over the past year, Merriam Station Community Garden and some local businesses have proven our capacity to recycle 28,000+ pounds of organics. We did this maintaining a hot compost pile using feedstock including coffee grounds collected from businesses. We also tried sheet composting/lasagna gardening experiments that proved to be effective. Next we’ll be working with the Universtiy of St. Thomas to recycle these coffee grounds with worm composting.
