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!

A beautiful sunset and moonrise.

Last week we hosted a Compost Seminar at Compostgirl's school for Teachers to be trained in composting and wormery ownership. (a post about it is in preparation...to come soon...) I was helping set up , and did a talk on composting and school gardening and how to integrate it in to the curriculum, and by the time I finished helping to pack up and clear up at school it was very late and I wanted to get home!

I was about to get in my car when I spotted the violet and scarlet streaks of this sunset, so I waited and walked up the school field to the brow, to get a better view. As a result of waiting I was priviliged to experience and photograph the MOST FABULOUS sunset!










And then later Moonrise over the wood.

Sorry its a carp photo, but you get the idea!

Wonderful wonderful sights!
