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!

Well I didn't get much of my "to do " list done on Fri...went to Hereford and did a LOT of shopping, mainly dried goods , some for the store cupboard, some for use now...also went into Philip Morris and got some more wine making stuff...I LOVE that shop....and Compostman and I had a very nice lunch in a local pub The Tarrington Arms

but I did get 6 good eggs from 6 hens.....so all the hard work this week swapping the runs around, giving the new girls extra protein, making sure they had enough calcium etc MUST have worked!!

Went to the Domestic Fowl Trust farm today on a nice outing...will post up more tomorrow...as am on way to bed now ( feeling very tired and a bit low here....)
