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.

A very busy Mothering Sunday

The hens invade the made compost storage bin...looking for worms!

Compostman prunes apple trees in the orchard

and Sidney snoozes the day away under a cloche....

  1. What a lovely area you seem to live in, the orchard is both useful and pretty I'm sure :)

    I partly grew up in the Herefordshire area and went to secondary school in the Ross-on-Wye area, but I don't remember it being very nice... I probably just didn't appreciate it at the time.

    And it's nice to see such happy chickens!
