Don’t be afraid of the unknown

Hackathons can seem like an event only for those technically inclined but #CropsOnMars is like no other hackathon. It’s an event for ideation, creation and dreams.

It doesn’t matter if you have limited tech skills or even very little knowledge on growing crops – the best hackathons only need people who are enthusiastic and eager to explore and learn new things. You bring that and we have the rest covered.

Magic happens when people get together to brainstorm. We’ve got a great ‘crop’ of mentors and judges on hand to help guide and support the ideas that can form and if nothing else it’s an opportunity to learn something new.

The United Nations forecasts  the population of our planet will be  over 9 billion by 2050. I think we all need to be concerned about how we intend to feed that population and how we can sustainably do it without destroying our own habitat.

So for those dreamers who have ‘ideas’ but aren’t sure how to get them to grow – #CropsOnMars is exactly where you need to be 4th and 5th November.

If you have any questions we would love to hear from you. Contact us at 

Cheers and see you all soon!
