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!

Oh, to be a cat!

Look who I found on the sofa! Tom Kitten and Sid curled up on end and Tabitha at the other end.



Tom and Sid are very good pals and often sleep in a bundle of cat, like this! Tabitha gets a little fed up with the boisterous boys sometimes...well, a girl needs some space occasionally!


Tom contemplating something outside.

I love my cats, These new kittens have filled some of the HUGE Monty puss shaped hole in my heart and in our lives, He can never be replaced, but these lot are a good alternative!

We now allow them to come upstairs, so sometimes the middle of the night is enlivened by catsplaying on top of us....

  1. Just found your lovely blog. Your cats are wonderful, I have two darlings, Sootie (10) and little Pebbles (1). It is hard to keep the camera away from them isn't it. I am a bit of a novice with composting, just built two big ones with pallets and they are already full so will be following your blog with great interest.

    Tonight the cute factor became insufferable as they all cuddled each other and now and then kissed noses....
