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 Sundial....and a Herefordshire sunset.....

In my last post I showed you a side view of our sundial...but I suddenly thought
"you need to see what it looks like on top!!" so here it is!! it says " Let others talk of stormy showers, I only count your sunny hours"

Also a view from my kitchen window at this time of year.....

And as we are marking the passage of time, some photos of a fabulous Herefordshire sunset for you to enjoy....

I took these, leaning on my rake, at the end of a VERY long, hard day of work...somehow it made them feel EVEN more special to me because I had worked hard..I appreciated the pause in my life to stop, look and enjoy the sunset....

I am lucky, my life allows me to experience this sort of moment as a natural part of my day...but EVERYONE could stop, pause and just ENJOY the moment...and just BE....

Try it!! You may find it VERY addictive!!
