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, which we share with Chickens, Cats, Guinea Pigs 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 work as an environmental educator, lecturer, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and have spent the last 11 years as a volunteer Community Compost adviser with Garden Organic and my local Council. I offer talks and run workshops and events where we talk about compost, veg growing, chicken keeping, cooking, preserving and sustainable living. We also make crafts and have fun.

We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun. To learn more about us click on the About Compostwoman tab and remember to click on the photos to make them full size!

Snow!

Well, they were right! Lots of snow fell on Friday  on us, (well lots for here in the UK, at least)


We are having to keep the bird feeders stocked up - not much else for the poor things to eat at the moment.


Cassi Cat seems unbothered by the snow and came out with me as usual.


Very pretty, very cold.





Looking down into the wood - very Narnia - like.



You can see our roof is well insulated! No snow melt.


Disgusted hens - they refused to come out of the run.



Cassi looking in at the hens

Pretty.

  2. Beautiful snowy pictures remind me of living in the UK but I also remember the slush that came afterwards.... my chookies would love some of that cool right now. They have their wings permanently splayed at the moment because its so hot down here. Joy

  3. We had more today - and more is expected tomorrow. I am NOT looking forward to the slush phase!
