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.

Need more stone! and what else has been going on...

Today we had more scalpings ( base stone) delivered and Ken the Diggerman and Compostman and I spread them out over the area of the yard and drive.

It is HARD work, no wonder breaking/moving stone was deemed a suitable punishment for criminals the world over!

We are now ready for the top layer of gravel ( from the Forest of Dean, local stone to us) BUT there are no available lorries to collect and deliver until late tomorrow.

So, we are levelling and putting up gate posts and I am busy cleaning out hen houses ready for a hen keeping course at the weekend.

Eco Club is coming here for a Forest School Party tomorrow so I need to sort stuff out AND have to make a hard decision. is it too windy and will I have to call it all off on safety grounds?
