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!

So, in the latest news from a world gone mad, what madness is this?


my wonderful patch of the world has been identified as a potential site for Hydraulic Fracturing - that is Fracking to you and me.




We lie directly between Fownhope and Fowlet Farm on the above map and these two places are only a few miles away

I am in a state of shock at this news - I have supported campaigns elsewhere in the UK against Fracking, but never, ever thought we might be a target area as well!

Oh well, time to walk the walk again and get campaigning, I guess!
