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.

Day three of Tiny hen in hentensive care

For the third day running, Tiny Hen followed me around outside, joined in with the other hens for a feed, followed me as I put them all in the hen runs at night - and then turned around and went back to the barn and climbed into the cat carrier she slept in, inside the house.

She sat there, crooning, until I shut the door and carried her inside, Then she started purring when I put her in the downstairs cloakroom, again, for the night.

I think she likes being a house hen :-)
