GO2 Bluebell is on Bluebell South allotments off The Avenues. It has 15 plots managed by Norwich City Council and is open to anyone living within City Council area. There are about 130 members of all ages and many nationalities. Many members have been in GO2 Bluebell for years, enjoying both the challenge of growing fresh, organic vegetables, and the friendly social side.
In GO2 Bluebell you get a small plot measuring 1.20 metres wide x 6 m long (approximately). Plot rent is £22 for the first plot and £20 for each additional plot per year (October-September). We also have wheelchair-accessible raised boxes (measuring 1.2 x 1.2 m) for £9 a year. The rent includes use of tools, seasonally available seeds and plants, and manure and compost. Practical advice and information is always on hand and we run short training sessions such as pruning, how to sow seeds and look after your soil. If you are a complete beginner, we can arrange for someone to help get you started.
We expect you to give at least three days worth of help a year towards managing GO2 Bluebell and maintaining communal facilities. When you join, you will be asked to agree to the terms by signing the member’s agreement form. You choose which task group you would like to help with and the facilitator for that group will contact you. All communication is done by email, where possible.
You are responsible for looking after your plot and keeping the paths around your plot tidy. Once you have joined GO2 Bluebell you will be given the password to access the members’ area on the website. You will receive a fortnightly e-newsletter which contains information about what plants are available, growing advice, recipes, and events. There is a communal work morning on the first Sunday of the month followed by a food-sharing lunch.
The GO2 Bluebell Centre (main shed) is open on Sundays and Wednesdays from 10 am to 1 pm. There is a rota of members to provide advice, plants and seeds. If you would like to sign up for a plot, please come to the site between those times and you will be shown round. You will be allocated a plot once you have signed up and paid and sent a welcome letter with more detailed information. Forms are also available in the shed and on the website.
