How can agroecological movements regenerate soil, cultivate food sovereignty, and works towards liberation? Using a combination of field experiments, community farming projects, educational programs, and laboratory work, Cole studies how the ecology of soil is imprinted by the social movements that form them. The Gill Tract Community Farm and Oxford Tract are critical land sites for this work, and necessarily involve studying land use policy, offsetting high operating costs, and fostering experiential education. In partnership with organizations such as CAFF and Black Earth Farms, Cole works to create a community science network capable of evaluating how no-till agriculture impacts the sustainability and wellbeing of farming communities. He is a member of the Agroecology Lab at UC Berkeley.
