Active Citizens

Active Citizens was a long-term project funded by the Nominet Trust as part of Windmill Hill City Farm’s community programmes. We listened to people and discovered what community projects they would like at the City Farm. From this feedback we developed community projects and volunteer projects for people to get involved.

Each Active Citizen community project had volunteers involved in the development and the decision making with Jules, the Active Citizens Coordinator, supporting the development, managing or overseeing the projects.
