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.

Herefordshire food festival...and a Tiger in my bin!!!

October 28 th and I was being "compostwoman" on the Herefordshire Council Waste Reduction stand at the Flavours of Herefordshire Food Festival.

Although the weather was NOT kind, the festival was good fun and I got the chance to have a wander ( and a taste!) around many food stalls. Sophie Grigson was there and gave packed out talks. The Food Pavilions was our favourite place, where more than 100 local, artisan producers were displaying a mouthwatering array of food and drink which had clocked up the smallest number of food miles possible.

Compostgirl had fun in the childrens area run by the excellent Hereford Waldorf School...and decided to invade my compost bin!!!
