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.

Tuesday twitterings and 5 good things

Produce today

Eggs 6 ( and ANOTHER whopper from Genghis Hen!)
Lots of stuff nearly ready again but will leave it till tomorrow I think! As I have too much to deal with today!

Today has been a VERY busy one, I have cleared out the lower kitchen so I can actually SEE the worktops. I have made a LOAD of Ratatouille, both in lumpy form and in a more liquidised version as soup and pasta sauce.

I have lovely friend and her lovely children coming round for the day tomorrow and it was her birthday on Sunday ( I think a significant one!) so in addition to a bought present we hope she likes, I have bottled her a little home made something from Compost Mansions...

Today has passed in a whirl of picking, chopping and cooking as well as tidying up the house, and paying bills and doing LOTS of paperwork.

I have also cracked on with more of my Forest School portfolio....discussing how children learn...

and my 5 good things?

1 6 eggs again !
2 My rose petals have dried beautifully and smell divine in the study
3 My new drier/airer is being put up as I type!
4 The Kittens continue to delight us all
5 Best friend and her 2 children are coming round tomorrow!
