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.

Holocaust Memorial Day

Tomorrow  is  Holocaust Memorial Day and on BBC Four TV at 8 pm is a most wonderfully moving programme - Holocaust - A musical memorial film from Auschwitz

It was made for the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, and reflects on the shocking fact that the Nazis used music as a psychological tool in their machine of death.

I saw this film when it first came out and it  moved me so much. I cried so many tears, of sadness at what happened but also at the wonderful music.

It is well worth watching.

Thank you for reading x

  1. I'm working tomorrow night (a school concert) so I must make sure that I record this programme. I visited the camps in Poland about 15 years ago. The experience is a very powerful one that never fades. Jx
