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.

Out in the garden, enjoying the sunshine.

Today I have been gardening and tidying up inside and out and mowing the grass! I managed to mow all the grass in the garden and dump it by the compost bins ready for me to fill them up. I will do that after I have cleaned out the hens, probably on Sunday.
If you look REALLY hard, you can see clouds of midges in this picture!

The colours of the leaves on the trees are amazing at the moment!

As I had the mower out I went down the paths in the wood and gathered several loads of chopped leaves.
This is Compostgirls's tree, she plays on it for hours. It is a ship, a horse, a plane, a magic carpet to fairyland....what ever she desires!

( I play on it, too, sometimes...........)

The wood was wonderful today, so beautiful in the afternnon sun.
A pile of leaves waiting for me to load up the leaf mold bins!

My compost bins, awaiting their food!

The grass cuttings are from today's mowing marathon!
