The Research pod makes research accessible and open. It has several long-term research foci, with the objective of creating and maintaining a knowledge base that feeds in to other pods and projects. These are:
- resilience in food systems,
- sovereignty and safety (including pollution),
- agri-cultural and social regeneration,
- geospatial tools for open-source citizen social science.

Through MAPPING, COMMUNITY DATA JAMMING and SKILLS-SHARING, we re-visit what it means to “search”: to seek out new understandings and new imaginations of our world, to inhabit civic and agroecological space together. Sit with us at occasional BOOKCLUBs co-organised with friends in the network such as Tanah, where we sift through texts to find gems of practical wisdom and unearthly beauty – new words for our times. Or delve deeper into what knowledge-building can look like in the SOIL REGENERATION PROJECT, and witness how citizen research enables people to make their own futures.
