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!

Awards, and an apology

I have been given an award by Jennie over on her blog



“The authors say that blogs who receive this award are exceedingly charming. This blog invests in proximity in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be new friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandisement. Our hope is that when ribbons of these awards are cut, even more friendships will be propagated. Please give your kind attention to these writers.”

WOW! I am very flattered! Thank you Jennie!

Anyway, a condition of the award is that I send it on to eight other bloggers.

However, I (ahem) have also been given this award by Hot Belly Mama on her blog


Lemondade Stand Award!


The rules for this one are to nominate 10 blogs that show gratitude or great attitude or both

And THIS award by Greentwinsmummy in A Life full of blessings





I am SO flattered! I really am...and I can't possibly decide on 26 different recipients, who haven't already been given at least 2 of them ( because I was so tardy in sending them on...ooops sorry, I was a bit busy in January!!)

So, I hope no one minds if I don't pick any one to get any of these...I want YOU to award yourself one, if you are reading this! I love all the blogs I have listed and many other blogs which I haven't, so this seems the only fair way to go..

I hope Jennie, Hot Belly Mama and Greentwinsmummy don't mind......
