Composting Apples and Apple Pulp

As it is becoming customary to celebrate the apple harvest by holding Apple Days including the pressing of apples to make juice I felt it might be useful to expand the advice on composting apples. 

 Any composter who does not have their own fruit trees or access to the pulp from an apple day may find that the local allotment, community garden, local park or farmer with a small orchard may be happy to allow the collection of  bruised or rotting windfalls. In towns a local juice bar may be pleased to have the pulp removed for free. The revised page includes sections on Hot and cold composting of apples and apple pulp,as well as the use of pulp in wormeries
