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!

New guinea pigs

Some of you may remember the tragic loss of our previous guinea pigs to a stray dog.

We were all very upset by this, but after some time had passed Compostgirl began asking if we could have some more, as she is very fond of them as pets ( as am I)

So I contacted Hoppety House Rescue to see if Mandy had any piggles needing re homing, and she had lots!

We ended up with four females, all a social group who needed a new forever home.

So, meet Fudge



And Juniper

We have had them three weeks now and they are adorable! So friendly and playful :-)
