CropConnect is a non-profit platform focused on providing meaningful, short-term, volunteer farming experiences in your local area. If you are a farmer in need of help, you can visit our website and post what you need help with. If you are looking for an active and impactful experience, you can enter where your location, and we show you all the farmers from the closest to the furthest. Our goal is to encourage community support and bring neighbourhoods across the globe closer together.

CropConnect originated from the LauzHack Against Covid19 competition in April 2020. We were motivated to launch this platform because of the seasonal worker shortage from the coronavirus. The team is composed of Maxime Marchionno (EPFL), Alix Buu-hoang (EPFL), Nicole Shi (Carnegie Mellon University, EPFL exchange) and Nicolas Peslerbe (Alumni-EPFL). This project is supported by the EPFL through the YGRANT program. A huge thanks to them.
