Video: Grounds to Ground Sustainability Program

We’re proud to be a part of Grounds to Ground, a sustainability program at UMass Dartmouth that transports Jim’s Organic Coffee grounds to local Sid Wainer & Son farms.

The Grounds to Ground initiative collects our used organic coffee grounds from the UMass Corsair Cafe, a campus cafe that brews coffee for faculty and students on the go. They then transport the grounds in buckets to Sid Wainer & Son, a specialty food and produce distributor, to spread on their farmland. Organic coffee grounds make excellent mulch, adding nitrogen-rich nutrients to the soil.
