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.

The start of 5 good things

I have spent a pleasant afternoon sitting on the sofa snoozing with Tabitha and Tom on my lap also snoozing...

It was their fault! they fell asleep on my lap , purring, and I couldn't turf them off, now could I? and their purring is soooooo sleep inducing.....

While on the subject of pleasant things, a forum of which I am a member has a thread where you list 5 good things about your day. Occasionally I find it hard to think of ANY good things about my day (!) but this thread ALWAYS makes me realise I actually have many things to list and be happy about!

1 Tabitha and Tom snoozing on my lap while I had a nap, getting friendly enough to do that
2 The nap was much needed, I was feeling unwell and needed a rest
3 Compostmiss has been being rather badly behaved and we have had to take some action over her behaviour which was sad BUT today she was nicer to us.
4 Compostman has got a new piece of AV equipment which is better than the several items it replaces...and they can go on Freecycle or Ebay
5 I have harvested lots of cherry tomatos today, and the blighted spuds seem to be ok when Compostman dug some up.
