Asking for coffeegrounds, vegetable, and fruit trimmings?
I recently decided that I would try gardening this spring and finally settled on the square foot gardening method. Rather than buy bags of compost, im making my own. Problem is getting my pile large enough. Apparently some people head over to coffee shops and grocery stores for their compost ingredients. Is there some type of etiquette for this? I was thinking of asking my college's cafe for their coffee grounds and heading over to the grocery store and asking for their fruit and vegetable trimmings. Am I supposed to provide anything to store these things in? how often should I propose that I come by? Im thinking i might be a nuisance if i went everyday after school lol. I plan to stop by several Starbucks as well, as we practically have them every few blocks here. A little nervous about this as I expect weird looks.
