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.

What do you do on a snowy day if you are a cat?

You watch the TV VERY intently....

You walk across the table with your muddy paws....

and you snooze the day away.....


  1. Or you go outside briefly, look around distainfully, turn around, come back in and find that nice big pile of clean washing that looks so attractive. Then you curl up in it, and stay there until the snow goes away! Wayland just doesn't "do" wet cold feet!

  2. Actually, that sounds like a good way for anyone to spend a snowy day. Just maybe not the muddy paws on the table :-)

  3. I wish *I* were one of our cats!

  4. Stunning pictures of your woodland. I was waiting for a creature from Narnia to pop out from behind a tree! Magical.

    And you chickens are so funny.

  5. :0 same as mine...:) very pretty.
