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!

A busy snowy day

We DID have fun today! We made a snow man We had a snowball fight And we went for a walk in the Woodland. Then we went inside, drank hot chocolate, ate biscuits and watched a DVD in front of the woodburner. With the cats curled up on top of us.


  1. The second photograph is especially beautiful!
    It must be fun to live where it snows. For a little while at least!

  2. That all sounds so much fun ..... especially as we have NO snow. Every blog I look at has pictures of people having fun and here it's just cold and grey. Shuffles off sulking! (but also remembering what hard work snow can be!!)
