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.

The WONDERFUL Big Green Gathering

I have just spent the last 6 days at the Big Green Gathering, doing my "compostwoman " bit , spreading the compost message to people outside the Big Green Idea marquee......

I spent 5 days talking to people about compost...and I learnt SUCH a lot......
I was doing my compostwoman stuff in the "Big Green Idea " marquee...a new charity just launched by Brigit Strawbridge..of "It's not easy being green" TV fame..

I HAD SUCH a good time, mr and miss cw came for a day,,,and had such fun making music work by powering a bike operated generator....I THOUGHT I was quite deep green BUT it just goes to show you can ALWAYS learn something.............

and THAT is what the Big Green Idea is all about.....learning something new...we can ALL learn from it..............
