I will be talking about the cyclical nature of apple production and how the core of the apple contains the keys to a more sustainable and regenerative, rather than extractive, system. While the majority of cores and/or pomace are discarded, the possibilities of utilizing them for a higher purpose are nearly endless. Rootstock, animal feed, fuel, alcohol, compost and more can be made with what most people throw away, and by redefining "waste", there will be less of it.
