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.

G is for....

I am passionate about gardening organically. I am entirely organic here, far above and beyond even the Soil Association standards for growing. I am a member of both the Soil Association and Garden Organic, here in the UK. I am also a Master Composter and Master Gardener - a volunteer community mentor, spreading the word about composting and gardening to my fellow man.

I love my garden - I am at my happiest when I am digging or sowing or planting out or harvesting my crops.

I think I am. I am told so, anyway!


I definitely qualify as geeky....far too much education, far too many hours spent with my nose in a book not to!
