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.

Sun July 25th

I have been tidying up the garden and weeding and mowing. It has been SO wet here the last week I have not been able to mow, and I really wanted to get it all tidied up!

So, am pleased as have a neat looking veg patch and polytunnel, garden, orchard etc now.

Have also caught up with harvesting all the crops, have not actually preserved them but at least they are in the 'fridge now!

The house is a tip, but hey ho, I don't really care about that!

New hens still delightful, Queenie now eating out of my hand and coming when I call :-)
