Sarah would like to thank volunteers for their assistance in the glasshouse and the field - in particular Jesse Kurylo and Peter Somerville. Also, the cafe owners and baristas that helped supply spent coffee grounds, in particular Roma cafe in Botannica, Richmond. This research was made possible through the financial support of the Frank Keenan Trust Fund.
