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.

Reminder about my Givaway

While we have snow in the UK, I am guessing that more of you will be looking at blogs as you have a bit more indoor time - so if you are here because of this - please do remember to "follow" me and leave a comment so you can be entered into my 1000 post celebration Givaway.

And if you are not from the UK, please do enter as well - I may not send you something  large and heavy but I will send you something, if you win!

  4. Hi Enie

    Its all got a bit pointed over there so I have withdrawn from commenting :-)

    Mooncups are really good things though imo.
