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.

A lovely day out...

Whew what a scorcher!

I spent yesterday(9th June) as compostwoman doing my superhero bit to reduce landfill by encouraging people to buy discounted compost bins from my council (see why compostwoman? for details!) or to just compost by any means possible...at THE MOST FAB green event in support of Hereford Waldorf school..at Hellens Manor at Much Marcle..( google it!) all day. Mr cw and Miss cw came for the afternoon so we went round the glorious grounds and followed the treasure hunt and made flags.....

Utterly hot, am totally baked and parched...but a wonderful day which ended with all the exhibitors/participants having Pimms on the fabulous terrace....

The fabulous terrace
