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!

Glorious Weather!

Hasn't it been gorgeous lately!

I held the third of my Forest School sessions with the Year 1 children this afternoon and we had great fun making dens for soft toys, twig pictures and doing bark rubbings. Then I had an Eco club session after school where we did more laying trails around the School grounds and going looking for animal tracks in the mud. The weather was wonderful and much fun was had by all.

THEN I spent an hour with the Yr 2 teacher, my " partner in eco-ness" at school, we had a good old tidy up and harvest in the School Veg patch. My back was aching by the time I came away, having spent 6 hours at school in total ... still I DID get several cups of tea AND the joy of seeing happy children enjoying what we do together!
