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.

Update on Ginger

Ginger is still happy and eating etc...can fly to perch on a branch 5 ft in the air...resists any attempt to grab her..and is the picture of rude health EXCEPT her tail feathers still droop a small amount BUT she is now waggling her tail again...so I guess she will be fine!

AND ( best of all...) she will come to me for food and let me pick her up again...

so she has obviously forgotten what I did/has forgiven me for it......

so she got some strawberries as a special treat today...

and Henny seems to be sitting in the nest box A LOT and making a crooning noise.....I wonder if she is going broody??
