Composting at Heine Brother’s Coffee
Here’s some news on what one of our friends from Cooperative Coffees is doing in Louisville. Very cool project!
This short documentary features a remarkable young economic development engine in Louisville, KY started by coffee shop owners Mike Mays and Gary Heine (of Heine Brothers’ Coffee…another Cooperative Coffees member). Their concept was to compost their coffee grounds, and turn this waste into wealth. Mr. Brock’s story illustrates how this simple idea evolved into their current vermicomposting and urban farming operations in just a few short years. MacArthur Foundation Fellow Will Allen is interviewed, along with Gary Heine, Mike Mays, Sarah Fritschner, and others.
