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.

I have just seen this on a blog called Blagger

it is hysterical! I urge you to go and watch, if you like chickens!

Compostman was sitting next to me in the Study as I watched and chortled...he thinks I need to get out more! ( and stop taking up bandwidth on chicken vids...)


  1. Hee hee do you mean the Techno vid? If so very very funny!!

  2. That is so funny. I've sneaked into our hen coup at night but all is calm. I reckon they must have a look-out posted


Hello! Thank you for reading my blog and for commenting. I try to reply as quickly as I can and I really appreciate your interest in my life and doings here in The Compost Bin.
