Recycled coffee grounds turned in to compost are proving a magical formula for enterprising students from Ridgewood School.

The Green Bean team of 17 teenagers have just won the South Yorkshire county finals of Young Enterprise, and will represent South Yorkshire in the Yorkshire and Humber regional finals in June. Judges told team members they ‘loved their passion and commitment’. A staff spokesman said: “One judge even offered to invest in Green Bean Co when they finish the competition.”
