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.

N is for


I stay up much later than is wise or sensible. I like the nightime and have always been an Owl, never a Lark!
In common with many busy people, getting some "me" time is hard, so I tend to read or sew or surf the web late at night. I read blogs, chat to friends on various Fora, and do some crafting. So many things I get done...but then I am so tired the next day.

I know it is unwise to do this but in common with so many other bloggers with parental responsibilities, it is the only way to get any personal life!

  1. I'm the same, and I find that as I get older I need that time to unwind at night or else I can't sleep anyway.
