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.

First day of my CTLLS course in Hereford. I felt very ill part way through, all giddy and faint and had to sit out in a cool room for a while, which was not what I needed.

I still feel rather giddy and unwell.

Also there is loads of work involved, far more than we all thought ( not just me!) and I am looking at the diary and wondering how I can double up time to make 14 day weeks, for the next 15 weeks,

Maybe think I have taken on more than I can cope with this time. A lot of my adult teaching is with "drop in" parents and children on environmnetal play and craft sessions which makes sorting out a schedule for being assessed for the course a bit of a challenge!

oh dear......

Wine! I need Wine! where are my minions bearing goblets of drink!
