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.

Sat. I...

Worked inside and out.

I cleaned the house, harvested stuff from the garden, washed, hung out to dry, got back in and folded up to put away... various clothes. I watered the polytunnel as normal, watched some recorded TV programmes ( Victorian Pharmacy was very good!)

and had a bit of a rest as I feel curiously weary, at the moment.

  1. Phew! I feel tired just reading about what you did. Can't think why you felt weary. I'm sure it was a very satisfying day. We spent 5 hours of it sitting in a car, stuck in traffic for a lot of the time. It should have taken 2 to 3 hours. Still we visited Ryton on Sunday, which was the best bit of the weekend.


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.
