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.

Tues 27 July-pottering around

Compostgirl went off to a drama workshop all day today, so after taking her down to Ledbury I spent the day pottering in the veg plot, harvesting various crops, watering everything and worming hens.

Opal is happy to eat dosed pellet mash, Queenie and Pearl are happy to eat dosed soft bread so all got done today. Only 2 more days to go and I can start to integrate them into the main flock - That will be fun!

I also did some preparations for a party of visitors who are coming to the Wood tomorrow night, so tidying and mowing and putting things away went on as well.

Compostgirl really enjoyed her drama workshop and is now excitedly looking forward to going on a sleep over tomorrow night!
