Been talking to students all morning about jobs in arts and charities, what it’s like and a load of other things like climate change and politics, and now convinced that 17 year olds are basically the best https://t.co/y7sMlihSoO

Give seedlings and plants a nitrogen boost by stirring leftover coffee grounds into the soil or also can mix it into your watering can. It acts as a plant's CPR! Leftover coffee grounds can also be used in vegetable garden for fertilizer and to repel insects.
