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.

Yes I do...

Want to see what is out of THIS window, now!

Have to sit on this pile of paper...

You what? It is paper you need to look at? Never!

Oh, you are picking up that little silvery box again? I'll just come over and have a look...

While I am at it, I will just stick my head in your tea mug and drink what is in there... ( honest, she did, but I wasn't quick enough with my camera!)


  1. Fantastic site, I hadn't come across compostbins.blogspot.com previously during my searches!
