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.

Random views of the garden

Well the compost versus bought potting compost competition seems to have a winner!

The tomatos planted in my home made compost are setting fruits well ahread of the commercial peat free compost planted plants...and they look sturdier and bigger also.

We could really do with some rain here...my beans are looking a bit sad...I think I need to water this patch and then mulch the ground with grass clippings to keep in the moisture.
Some Ox Eye daisies growing by the garage..we have millions of these and they are very beautiful.
