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.

An update (of sorts)

Hello all :-)

Not been doing much crafting as finally, finally! the weather has changed and I am outside sowing and growing and composting and planting like crazy :-)

I did go to a Quilt show in Malvern a couple of weeks back which was wonderful and I have been cutting up fabric at nights to make home made jelly rolls and squares :-)

Not much else crafting  done, though - not even managed to crochet a square for a month :-(

Never mind, I will get back to it soon enough.
