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.

Bumblebee print for our new bedroom wall :)

 Remember the SnapBox review I posted about last week? Well I was most impressed that the print arrived the NEXT DAY! I ordered it at 11 am and it arrived the next day by courier at 2 pm. What about that!

The parcel came well wrapped up in recyclable stuff - I will be adding this cardboard to the compost bins.

The print itself was well cushioned on a separate card.

And this is what I chose - it is one of the Bumblebee images I took from the Centaurea next to the polytunnel door.

I am so pleased with this print - it looks just like I wanted it to and  the image quality is excellent.

I shall be putting it up in our newly finished bedroom, which we MOVED INTO TODAY! YAY!

A before and after post is being put together, but for now I am just so happy to be in a lovely, clean, decorated, pretty room.

With a lovely SnapBox print on the wall :)

    I would conside selling a copy, for a donation to a conservation trust?
