coffee grounds continuously add nitrogen to my winter compost heap and the "wetter the better".

It is a great combination with general kitchen scraps and the leaves collected in the fall. Come February, those coffee grounds will be helping convert the shredded office paper as well. One happy little heated system!

I include coffee ground in my compost together with kitchen scraps and I find it effective.

The worms in my worm bin also love the used coffee grounds! Maybe it perks them up a bit. :)

When I was a kid a neighbor taught me how to raise fishing worms on coffee grounds and corn meal. I've always added coffee grounds to my bins, great stuff.
