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.

Blogging awards and 7 things you may not know about me...

Thanks to Lucy over at The Smallest Smallholding. I have two lovely new blogging awards :-)
(Sorry it has taken me so long to post about it, though)


So now, I need to play along with the following rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
Thank you Lucy :-)

2. Add The One Lovely Blog Award / The Very Inspiring Blogger Award to your post.

Done, above :-) I could not find my images so I have borrowed those on The Garden Smallholder - do click on the images and take a look at her blog as well :-)

3. Share 7 things about yourself.

See below

4. Pass the award on to 10 nominees.
5. Include this set of rules.
6. Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs.

Well...I am sorry but I am not going to do this bit of the rules - what I would like is for any ( or all!) of you reading to join in, take the awards and if you do, leave a comment so I know you have done so as I would love to read about your 7 things. I do this because I think you are all lovely :-)

So, seven things about myself.

  1.  I am very very bothered by heights - I get the wobbles just going up a stepladder...
  2. But I have flown gliders!
  3. I have never dyed my hair
  4. Even though it is now going very grey
  5. I used to drive racing cars in Speed events.
  6. I was born with crooked little toes.
  7. I can't stand uncooked egg whites.
There, that was not so bad :-)

  1. Congratulations! I hate runny egg whites also, and also am scared of heights, but I have never flown a glider.


Hello! Thank you for reading my blog and for commenting. I try to reply as quickly as I can and I really appreciate your interest in my life and doings here in The Compost Bin.
