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!

F is for ...........

Failure

I have to admit I am NOT good at this  - I tend to succeed at pretty well all the things I have attempted which have a human element of control ;-)

But sometimes doing stuff (like growing plants or where animals are involved) where Nature is part of the process makes me sit up and take note that I am NOT 100% successful with everything I do and I CANNOT be so...

And that is fine by me :-) We all need a reminder that we are NOT all powerful ;-))

Fun

I love my life most of the time, it is such fun! To listen to birds, breathe fresh air, work in a woodland, mark the passing of the seasons, eat and drink delicious home made stuff, join in local events and seasonal rites ( like Wassailing, or May Day celebrations, or Apple Festivals)

Formidable

I have been told a number of times that I am. I think that is a good thing...I hope so, anyway!
