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, which we share with Chickens, Cats, Guinea Pigs 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 work as an environmental educator, lecturer, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and have spent the last 11 years as a volunteer Community Compost adviser with Garden Organic and my local Council. I offer talks and run workshops and events where we talk about compost, veg growing, chicken keeping, cooking, preserving and sustainable living. We also make crafts and have fun.

We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun. To learn more about us click on the About Compostwoman tab and remember to click on the photos to make them full size!

Hard at work.

I have been moving compost around today!

In the last few days I have (slowly) shifted 2000 l of compost out of the raised bed where it has lived for the last 6 months ( and where it grew a shed load of "Three Sisters" ie Sweetcorn, Beans and Pumpkins) and spread it on the veg patch.

I have also turned one of the compost bins
and dug out the contents to refill up the raised bed to grow 2008's "Three Sisters" crop.

oh and guess who helped to spread out the pile of compost onto the veg patch??
