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.

Tuesday "twitterings"

Well I finally gave in, and joined in......

After a very long  morning outside in the garden and then visiting a friend for tea and yummy gingerbread in the afternoon, I got home, had a meal and then sat down up here to do some work.

After a few hours I got a bit bored, so I joined Twitter........(!)

Not quite sure what all the fuss is about, tbh, but will give it a try!


  1. I joined Twitter a long time ago but I really don't know what to do with it. I love blogging, love keeping in touch with friends and family on facebook but the twitter thing is lost on me. I see it more as a way of advertising, im not really sure. Let me know if you find it to be useful.

  2. You need to tell us your username so we can follow you ;)

  3. Lewis, try looking up the top right hand corner of my blog...where you can see my tweet pane.......


Hello! Thank you for reading my blog and for commenting. I try to reply as quickly as I can and I really appreciate your interest in my life and doings here in The Compost Bin.
