Houston Based Startup Turning Juice Bar Pulp Into Black Gold

4 Oct

Solaris Ag Base from Houston, TX is producing worm castings from juice bars all over the Houston area.  Anson Woods and his team are expanding their operation into a warehouse facility.  Worm castings (black gold) the perfect fertilizer produced from nutrient dense juice pulp and coffee grounds by Anson’s worms.  Instead of filling up dumpsters, this waste is being used to produce soil enriching and life giving worm castings packed with pH neutral and beneficial micro-organisms.

Congrats to Anson and Solaris Ag Base on their continued success, and thank you for choosing Texas Red Worms as your composting worm supplier.

Take a look at this pic from Anson’s original worm farm.  What a gorgeous set up!Solaris Ag Base

    I have been reading up on a number of vermicompost systems (leaning towards flow through) and am entirely intrigued by this set up. How can I gather more details?

      The spicket is to drain leachate and the tubes are for aeration to keep the bins aerated.

        Isn’t the leachate just liquid fertilizer that can be used

        Yes, but the leachate is not worm tea. Tea has to be brewed with an air source. The leachate will have some fertilizer properties but will have a lot of anaerobic bacteria (not good). I’m not scared of using it for my plants after diluting it a bit.
