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.

Brilliant Compost song!!

Turn down my compostbin music BEFORE you play this!!!

A sillimation for a DogHorse tune, animated by Eclectech.co.uk, with the added delight of decay and disintegration from GrandmaOfShoes

plus a few other YouTube delights which I can't seem to get rid of.......but they ARE about compost as well, so never mind....


  1. CW, you really should incorporate this into your community composting demonstrations!! Am willing to be part of the backing group if necessary! (Going to be singing this all the way to the farmer's market now....)

  2. I am going to take a laptop and run various stuff and this IS going to be one of them!

    Its great , isn't it ;)
