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!

Some general good things

1 Compostman
2 Compostgirl
3 Where I live, I love the way I can get up in the morning, go and let the hens out and breath deep of clean fresh air, laced with birdsong and the scent of flowers.
4 My daft Cats and Kittens, their antics make me SO happy!
5 All the wonderful veg and fruit growing in the garden and polytunnel..its hard work but SO worth it!
6 My friends...online and in the flesh.
7 The trees in our wood. I love to go and sit on the big dressed stone in the clearing under the old Oak tree and just listen to the trees breathing. I do this some mornings after I have let out the hens.
8 The hens and the fresh eggs they lay. Some of their antics are exasperating, but they make me smile!
9 The simple pleasures of my life....chutney I have made, jam on toast for breakfast made by Compostman, the pleasure on Compostgirl's face when she has been playing in the wood.

( hmm might as well go for 10!)

10. Living the life I live!
