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.

Friday fun and friviolity

Today, its pouring down.....and once I have done the Hens I am NOT going to do stuff outside. I am going to have a day of inside jobs.

I am going to sort out my HUGE pile of material scraps and oddments which are scattered all over the house (!) into one storage place and start planning a quilt from them.

I am also going to put the candle making stuff and the soap making stuff in separate , LABELLED, boxes in my new Study cupboard, so I can find them when I want them.

I am also going to reorganise my lotions and potions ingredients into one sensible place in our bedroom so all my essential oils etc is all together in a locked cupboard. (I keep Essential Oils away from prying little hands to be safe!)

AND I may go down to one of the Charity shops in Hereford to donate some items ( and if I see something I like I may be tempted to get it...who knows?)as we are going there, shopping, anyway!

Last time I donated some stuff...I ended up with a beautiful Portmerion Vase which was just right for putting Honeysuckle and Roses from the garden into! AND a copy of a Bill Bryson book which I hadn't read yet!

So...wish me luck! I'll let you know how much I managed to get done.....
