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.

Mabon celebrations

It is the Autumn Equinox . A day of balance, of light and dark. A day to celebrate the harvest and a day I spent some time, teaching in my wood, showing adult carers ways to have fun outdoors, make dens, fire, and do all sorts of fun stuff outside with children.

A day to honour the God and Goddess, of the Harvest, of the Woods, of the Fields, and all manner of wild things and tame.

I decorated my house and especially my lovely Green Man, with hops, drying and fragrant, redolent with promise of beer and merriment at Yule.

I harvested Apples and Pumpkins and more good things from my garden, wood and orchard.

I collected another rescue, companion cat. She is adorable!

I gave thanks.
