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.

Forum meetup part 2

So today ( Sunday) we had Mrs C and her husband and lovely little daughter (who is 9 weeks old) still with us as they had stayed the night.      

After a slow start and a huge cooked breakfast ( a real treat for us, as we usually have cereal or toast!)  we all wandered off to do various things                       

Little Miss C seemed fascinated by everything and watched the trees, the leaves , the hens, Compostgirl indeed everything with wide eyed amazement!

Mr C wandered around and  took some wonderful photographs for his blog, at one point we thought we might have found a rare butterfly in the pool area but it turned out not to be very rare, after all.

Mrs C and LMC helped to collect eggs and let out the hens. Then Mrs C and I and LMC went down into the wood and just sat and enjoyed it all.

At lunchtime we went to a local pub for an excellent meal and then, after tea and (more) cake we waved off the C family.

Hopefully they and all our other friends from the forum will come again!
