St Ives Community Orchard is a tranquil, beautiful little nature reserve promoting biodiversity, not only providing habitats for local wildlife but also encouraging everyone to enjoy the outdoor space and pick their own fruit. Here at Foundation, we will be dropping off all the chaff (essentially the coffee bean ‘skin’) from the roasting process to mulch the fledgling apple trees.
The New Yard restaurant at Trelowarren Estate offer a complete ‘plough to plate’ experience, with complete traceability for all their meats. Continuing their passion for sustainability and quality produce, owners Jeff & Caroline recently created a walled garden, which will be hosting open days for growers. We will be sending as much of our coffee grounds over as possible to help increase the nutrients within the walled garden. We have also volunteered to help turn the gardens over in Spring.
We want to keep our empty 60kg coffee sacks out of landfill at all costs. Contact us if you would like to repurpose any for craft or community projects.
