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!

Visit to the Domestic Fowl Trust

We had a trip over to Honeybourne to the Domestic Fowl Trust a very interesting place ( if you like chickens!) We spent around 3 hours there as well as eating lunch and getting various "chicken" related things from their shop. The range of birds they have there is AMAZING! and all very well cared for and looked after. There are some rare breeds of pig, goat, sheep as well and some very sweet ponies.

I was able to get some advice on the new hens as well as some hen supplies which I couldn't buy nearer home, Compostgirl was entranced by the whole place and, even though it rained, we all had a lot of fun.
