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!

Sad day.....

We had this Blackbird nest in the Climbing Hydrangea on the north face of the house...I snapped this last week , but sadly three of the birds were killed by something...

now we have discovered that the last baby bird has died in the nest...

I guess the 48 hours of non stop rain and wind into that wall may have had something to do with it...

also a baby robin flew into one of the kitchen windows today and broke its neck...

despite all the windows having RSPB bird silhouettes......

Mother Nature can be sad sometimes...........
