Has anybody composted tea leaves or brewers mash and used it in their orchards and do you hav e any idea if its too acidic etc...? I have never worked with this before but it seems like a prime and wonderful resource especially since there will be large amounts and it's free. Any suggestions or comments would be most welcome. Thanks

Just saw your post. I too was thinking of asking if brewers mash leavings would make a good composting source? Here in S. Idaho we have plenty of small breweries.

Any comments by the experts would be appreciated.

I've been traveling all over Idaho these past ten years. What part are you in, or near?
