More recycled materials for gardens
First, the gardeners at Parklawn Community Garden in Montgomery County were using coffee sacks last summer as mulch and pathways. They block weeds nicely and will eventually decompose, but could be pulled up in fall and stored inside to make them last longer. These bags came from Mayorga Coffee in Rockville, which has bag pickup days when they do a big roast (they send out alerts on Facebook). Other coffee roasters probably do the same, so check it out.
recycling programs for "blue wrap" so the source may dry up.
If anyone with hospital know-how wants to chime in on this one, I'd be interested to hear what you think.
