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, which we share with Chickens, Cats, Guinea Pigs 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 work as an environmental educator, lecturer, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and have spent the last 11 years as a volunteer Community Compost adviser with Garden Organic and my local Council. I offer talks and run workshops and events where we talk about compost, veg growing, chicken keeping, cooking, preserving and sustainable living. We also make crafts and have fun.

We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun. To learn more about us click on the About Compostwoman tab and remember to click on the photos to make them full size!

Sid the not so kitten!

I took Sid to our vets last night for the first of his innoculations, a general check up and to see about getting him neutered...NOT just because of the "spraying of the sofa" incidents...but because we DON'T want to breed from him so why should someone else's queen suffer the consequenses of his actions?

AND...SID is actually about 9 months old....he probably has some Oriental blood (looking at him I am not surprised...he has a very vocal call, walks like a cat walk model, is VERY delecate boned and has a "kinked" tail...)

so...he is booked in to be neutered next Thursday...and is allowed outside to play in the meantime as he is NOT the baby we thought he was!

BUT he is still a lovely, lovely cat.and he LOVES our house and gardens! He is so affectionate and has settled down to a tolerance with Kitty Cat very quickly ( which, after the antics of the Hens recently, is a HUGE relief!)

It is SUCH fun to watch him at play!
