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.

Request post spot

Ok lovely readers and followers ( and welcome to all my new followers!)

What would you like me to post about next? Hens, composting, growing a particular seed, a "how to" post, or what?

Let me know by comment, email, twitter or Facebook and I will do my best to help.

Hope you all approve of the new layout - comments on that as well would be most welcome.

love, Compostwoman XXX


  1. I would really like to see something on worm farming. I live in a high desert environment and the weather can be extreme. (right now we have about 100 degrees, single digit humidity, and the Waldo Canyon Fire a few miles to the west.)
    I need something online to distract me!!
