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.

I is for ......

INDUSTRIOUS Well I think you will agree I am, if you read the stuff I write about doing here!

INDEPENDENT – I am deeply, deeply independent, have been since I was a small child. Mostly it is a good trait, but (whispers) sometimes I won't accept help or advice when really, I ought to.

IN LOVE with Compostman, I have been married to him for 26 years, known him as a friend and colleague for 5 years before that - thinking about it I actually have know him for 3/5th of my life! Wow!

INTERESTING – Well, people say I am, anyway... I think I am, I have certainly done and seen a lot of different stuff and packed a lot of living into my nearly 50 years on this Earth.
