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.

Hot Bin and Quilting

Now the days are getting longer ( and they are! They are!) I have been doing more outside work, like getting the latest batch of compost out of the HotBin. This is what the Hotbin has produced since the last emptying out, on Nov 3rd 2012. pretty impressive, I think and shows the value of an insulated compost bin in colder weather.

but as my back is still quite painful I have also been doing some indoor work as well, during the daytime. So, I have been doing lots of tidying and decluttering and cleaning windows and sowing seeds in the hotboxes etc.

 One of the indoor things I have been doing as well, is getting ready to make a quilt :-)

I have been sorting fabrics and cutting squares and arranging and re arranging them, until I had a pattern which pleased me.

And then on Tuesday I started to sew them together...

If you would like to see how I have been getting on, visit my crafting site to see more :-)
