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!

Many thanks...

to all of you for your lovely comments and good wishes. Compostgirl is very touched by your kindness, as are Compostman and I.

Her hand is not quite so painful today, but she has to avoid all sports and using it for at least two weeks as well as no "two handed" stuff for another couple of weeks. She has a dressing and bandage on the hand and has to keep it elevated in a sling, so can't use it much or get it wet at all. The outreach nurse is visiting us tomorrow ( still can't get over this! A home visit!)  to dress her hand so we shall see how things are going, then.

We are doing some things for her that she can't manage one handed, although she is coping really well and doing as much as she can.

Once again, thank you all :) You are all lovely :)
