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.

Tom and Tabitha

Tom and Tabitha are at the Vet's even as I type, being neutered.
We can go and get them this evening and I hope all is going well with them now and they are not too upset with us when we finally bring them home.

They are going to be microchipped as well; its all expensive BUT we do not want to add to the numbers of kittens born every year, if we want more kittens there are ALWAYS abandoned or unwanted cats needing a new home! The microchipping is to make sure that, IF they ever wandered off we might have a chance of finding them again.


  1. Awww bless them, extra cuddles for them later then! ;)
