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.

The view from my window. 30 August 2012

This is the view from our study window  facing NE - see the field of oats beyond the hedge? It has suffered very badly with all the poor weather we have had - I am not sure if there is anything left upright  worth harvesting, but I expect this fine weather will bring out the combine very soon -

This is the view, facing SW - our yard, ( with Compostman and JCB!), farming neighbour's apple orchards and, in the distance, Marcle Ridge.
