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.

school fete!

I spent today at compostgirl's school fete...I did my usual "compostwoman" stall...promoting home composting to all and sundry ...

BUT this time I had been given a lovely compost bin by the splendid people from "The Recycle Works" to hold a competition with..

You had to try to "Build the Bin" as fast as possible...and the smallest time won the bin!

I had LOTS of entries and made lots of money for the school fete...and a lucky person ( for the sharp eyed amongst you...NOT compostman OR compostmiss... but only by 1 second!!!)

went away with a lovely compost bin!!

THANK YOU to the Recycle Works for giving me this lovely prize!

a GOOD way to spend the Solstice...............I think!
