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.

Summer Solstice (2)

Solstice Blessings to all my lovely readers:-)

And guess what? it is raining here. Again. Hard.

No chance of seeing the sun rise this morning :-( in fact have not seen the sun all day - just rain.

Funny weather we are having!

And for those who were wondering, I celebrate from dawn on the 20th June until dusk on the 21 st June - that way whenever the official Solstice is, I will catch it ;-)

Also having two goes at seeing the sun rise helps, in weather like this!
