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.

A bad back and chick antics

Life has got a bit harder this weekend as on Friday evening I somehow "did something" to my back and by Saturday am could hardly walk - a shame as I was due to be on a Master Composters stall in Ross all day - which I had to cancel :(

I hate letting people down.

But I managed to hobble to see what the chicks and Nutmeg were up to, which raised a smile on my face :)

Cassi Cat got a bit too interested and Nutmeg chased her away

And then Nutmeg found the newly cleared raised bed, full of lovely, dry, compost. A giant dust bath!

  1. Aw - I hope that your back is starting to getting better. You seem to have had a run of really difficult things recently. I hope it all starts to pick up soon. Jx
