juicer pulp as food?

15 years ago


I am in the planning stage for our first worm composting system. I am looking at designs, and will start on the cheap, with a rubbermaid container system. My question pertains to using the fruit and vegetable fiber / pulp that is extracted when juicing. It seems a shame to throw that out, I was hoping this would provide suitable nutrition to our soon to be new worm friends. I expect that they will need additional liquid, and will save cooking liquids and left over coffee for their misting fluid. Do you think the pulp will be a good addition to their diet? They would also get the whole fruit and veggie scraps and cooked veggie leftovers - the pulp would be intermittent. Looking forward to your input!
