Welcome to The Compost Bin, which contains my musings on my life and things which interest me.
I live in Herefordshire with my husband and daughter; we have 4 acres of land which contains a woodland, polytunnel, small orchard, garden and veg plot. We grow our own organic produce and make lots of cider, wine, jam and chutney. We also make a lot of compost. We share our lives with 11 Chickens, 3 Cats, 3 Guinea Pigs and assorted wildlife. We try our best to live a more self reliant lifestyle, growing and making and fixing and mending and re-using and re-cycling stuff, if we can.
I used to be a Research Scientist, but that was many years ago. I now work as a freelance environmental educator/writer/forest school leader and community artist; I also spend a lot of time volunteering as a Master Composter and Master Gardener, helping people make compost and grow veg at home or at school.
I started blogging because I love to write about the things which interest me. Whether it's something I have done in the garden, an article for a magazine, a review of websites or equipment I use, a training course I have attended or "just" my daily routine - I love to write.
I hope you find something to interest you in The Compost Bin - remember to click on the photos to make them full size!

We now have a drive! (sort of)
Today the scalpings (the base layer of stone) got spread out.
