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.

Clear view now!

Some pictures from tree felling today. We have LOTS of trees and some of them have grown too big and are blocking the view or starting to cause various problems, so we cut them down and use them for heating . This is GOOD as it saves us burning (fossil) fuel oil.

BUT it does mean chopping down perfectly nice trees sometimes which are just in the " wrong place"...which is a little sad for us.

BUT we DO have 3 acres of trees like it.......about 1200 trees in all...so there are plenty more for the wildlife!!

So mr cw got togged up in his chainsaw PPE took chainsaw in hand and " did the deed"...This was the view before

and this is the view after.. we now have a clear view over the fields to the Ridge in the distance

And the Hens "helped" as is usual!!
