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.

A wormery! and a BIG thank you to Craig!

I have just been to pick up something I have wanted for AGES!


and what is more , I got it from Freecycle....so it cost me nothing!

and I am very grateful to Craig, who gave it to me , as I can use it to add to all my compost demonstration stuff.

If you don't know about Freecycle...well you really SHOULD find out..Basically if you don't want stuff you offer it on an email list and someone else has it from you...and it saves good stuff going to landfill( hurrah!)and if someone offers something YOU want...you email them and if they decide to give it to you...well HURRAH!

Freecycle...go on, you KNOW it makes sense!
