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.

L is for

I love leeks! I love eating them, after growing them.

I tend to be working alone, a lot of the time. Which I like.

I am pretty passionate about the things and people I love.

I am a bit obsessive about locking up. I was burgled one time when I was asleep in the house and it has left a mark even though it was many many years ago, now. I was OCD about it for a few years, but now I am just careful to check things are locked properly.

Always, ongoing, all the time,

I’m a loyal friend and a loyal customer in my local shops. I will defend my friends and help them out any way I can. BUT once you lose my loyalty that is it - it is gone forever.

I make lists all the time. I like to cross things off as I do them! I keep a notebook and date the lists, and I carry forward tasks undone, so I can see that I have not done them. I make short term, medium term and long term lists as well as fantasy lists....
