Lucy  The Design Files is Australia's most popular design blog. TODAY - a Melbourne initiative supplying community gardens with coffee grounds.

Melburnians love coffee. But, perhaps, we’ve become so used to someone else making our coffee, that we’ve forgotten where all those coffee grounds go after we’ve enjoyed our fix? Don’t worry @_reground is onto it. Find out more about this amazing initiative, which has just launched a crowdsourcing campaign to expand its service (its reached 70% of its goal already!) on TDF this afternoon.
