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.

A very busy Wednesday!

Today I have :-

Hand mowed a lot of stuff in the garden.

Cleaned out all the hen houses ( 5 in use at the moment!)

Wormed the three new hens

Filled up 5 compost bins with mowings and paper and stuff.

Harvested loads more produce, am too tired to remember what exactly, but I know I need to make time to process it all tomorrow or soon.

Wrote a proposal for a series of 20 week multi skills courses which I now need to get accredited ...did that in the garden under a tree!

Sorted out Compostgirl's bag to take to her sleep over tonight, and waved her off mid afternoon.

Checked everything was ready for the party of visitors coming to the Wood, tonight, the pre-session "sweep" of the wood had a particular emphasis on wasps etc at this time of year!

Took a load of stuff down to the Wood( First aid and Fire kit, tools, food, games etc) and set up the toilet area.

Had a shower, put on my "work" clothes and made ready to have some fun in the Wood this evening with a load of fellow Master Composters!
