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.

Master Composters Conference.

I have had a VERY long day today...I have been at the 2008 Master Composters conference at Garden Organic's Ryton HQ.

As always, it was a very inspiring day, Ryton is a wonderful place to vist and the speakers were thought provoking and stimulating.

I won't go into more detail, except to say I was in the final 3 for three awards but didn't win any...but the people who DID win have made me think about all the other, extra stuff I could do to help people compost more of their waste!

Bob Flowerdew gave us all an AMAZING talk....he was inspiring! If you ever get the chance to listen to him speak grabit with both hands, is all I can say.
