A successful community allotment scheme in south Norwich needs more land and new premises.

The Grow-Our-Own project at Bluebell South Allotments, which provides a platform for sharing knowledge as well as tools, seeds and plants, has expanded from eight to 150 members.

South Norwich News reports that members now need to find new premises for a centre which will house a kitchen for cooking home-grown food and a space for other healthy activities, plus more land to grow fruit and vegetables.
