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.

Sunday musings

Well the last day of the half term holiday here today and my foot is slightly better, to the point where I can get my boots on and go outside to do some work!

I managed to hobble to the hens and to empty out another couple of compost bins and put the finished compost in an empty bin, ready to shovel onto the veg garden as soon as the soil is workable.

It is a good job I can use my foot again as tomorrow is Day 1 of my CTLLS course and I need to be able to drive safely to and from Hereford.

I can't get a ride on public transport or with anyone else, unfortunately. but my foot is much improved now, so I am able to hobble around and will be OK to drive tomorrow....
