Council, with the help of local businesses Mocopan and Charles Sandford Woodturning and Joinery, is giving away free coffee husks and wood shavings, which improve the quality of compost and your garden.
Coffee husks are the bi-product of the coffee roasting process and an ideal additive to compost. They can also be used as a garden mulch when mixed with the soil directly or mixed with other mulch materials like straw, pea straw, wood shavings or wood/bark mulches.
Wood shavings are an excellent source of carbon when added to composts. They can be used alone or mixed with coffee husks to form a garden mulch.
Coffee husks and wood shavings can be collected from outside the Bundoora Park Visitor Centre, 1069 Plenty Road.
