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 dull day indeed!

Horrible and damp here all day but I made a start on clearing the Poly tunnel

so having made some space I moved the various small animal runs inside the polytunnel
I now have Guinea Pigs plural as I got 2 more rescue ones,  in what was once the Broody Ark but is now GP central.

The two new boys have settled in with Fudge and apart from a bit of posturing and teeth chattering, all is well (phew)

Peter Rabbit also in the polytunnel in his run, he goes to be neutered tomorrow and when he has healed up is getting a rescue doe as a companion.

Compostman has laid a path to the hens today using some of the Freecycle slabs we got a few weeks back, which will cut down on the swamp like appearence of the garden I hope...we make numerous treks out to the hens and it is already a sea of mud.
