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!

Meet the newest member of our cat family.
She belongs to Babs at Little Terraced House, who put out a plea for help on her blog a couple of days ago.
Those who follow Little Terraced House will know that things have been very hard for them all, with a sick grandchild the other side of the World, and lots of other issues to contend with. Life has not been kind to them recently.
Babs and I are fellow Master Composters and, although we had only met in real life once before, I could see how desperate she was to re home their beloved cat before they left (at very short notice) to return to Australia .
So after discussing it with Compostman and Compostgirl, we offered to help and now have the care of lovely Gizzie.
Babs and your lovely OH - we will do our very best to look after her well. She is an absolute darling - although the other cats do NOT agree at the moment!
