Hello and welcome to The Compost Bin. I'm Compostwoman and I live with my family in rural Herefordshire. We have nearly four acres of garden and woodland, all managed organically and to Permaculture principles, which we share with Chickens, Cats and assorted wildlife. We also grow a lot of our own food, run courses in all sorts of things and make a lot of compost!

I am a Master Composter and have spent more than a decade as a volunteer Community Compost adviser with Garden Organic and my local Council.
I'm a self employed Environmental Educator so I run workshops and events where I talk about compost, veg growing, chicken keeping, cooking, preserving and sustainable living. I also run crafts workshops and Forest School/outdoor play sessions in our wood.

We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun.

My veg box

Well, although we are self sufficentish for about 9 months of the year ( more if you like eating kale LOTS - I don't) We get a veg box, organic of course, local of course , to see us through the "hungry gap" when those who grow their own, but have run out of their own and need to buy from some-one else.....have to buy veg.......

We have gone to SHARED HARVEST this year - very good, very local cost £10 for this lot and very helpful.............
