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, which we share with Chickens, Cats, Guinea Pigs 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 work as an environmental educator, lecturer, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and have spent the last 11 years as a volunteer Community Compost adviser with Garden Organic and my local Council. I offer talks and run workshops and events where we talk about compost, veg growing, chicken keeping, cooking, preserving and sustainable living. We also make crafts and have fun.

We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun. To learn more about us click on the About Compostwoman tab and remember to click on the photos to make them full size!

Hens

The feathery laydies are enjoying all sorts of treats from the orchard and veg patch at the moment!




Spinach which has gone to seed...






And apples..lots and LOTS of apples!

  1. I heard somewhere that spinach isn't good for hens. Have you ever heard anything about that?

  2. No? I wouldn't give them lots, and certainly I would not give the Rhubarb leaves as it has such a lot of Oxalic acid. Spinach has that as well, but not so much...
