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!

H is for ..........

Honesty

I pride myself on being honest. I really do tell the truth. Sometims I edit it a bit...or sometimes I dissemble, to save someones feelings, but I do not tell lies.

I really detest lying in others as well - something I am very intolerent of! I do not forgive being lied to by others, either.

Holistic Therapy

I am a trained Holistic Therapist, so have a great belief in the power of essential oils, massage, talking and listening to aid recovery. I DO think modern alliopathic medicine has a place - I would not reccomend essential oils to treat cancer or a broken leg, for example! BUT I do think we can help ourselves to heal with more gentle, plant based therapies in many cases.
