Beginning two weeks ago, the Nostrand Avenue merchants Tinto, a coffee bar, and Punchline, a juice bar, have begun adding their coffee grounds and juice pulp to Imani Garden. I'm collecting them on my bike cart every other day, picking up one five gallon bucket from each establishment.
I carry the material about 15 blocks and deposit it into the "green" compost pile at Imani II. Soon we'll have a composting workshop where we'll mix these raw "greens" with some raw "browns" along with some biochar and effective microorganisms to create a compost pile.
Watch this blog for specifics.
Many thanks to Punchline and Tinto. Be sure to patronize them the next time you're on Nostrand Avenue near Park Place in Crown Heights North.
