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.

  1. Hi Sarah, I'm letting you know that sadly my blog has disappeared and a horrid company wants to charge me money to even access what I wrote. I'm a long time follower (and lover) of your blog, and I'd love you to come and follw me at my new address: www.frugalmummy.blogspot.co.uk Also if you wouldn't mind telling other lovely bloggers, as I have lost access to my 400+ followers and have no way of letting them know. Thank you xxx FM

  2. I have the same problem on my big computer. It's because I have a custom made template. I have mucked about with it that much, changing things, and moved away from the bog standard ones that Blogger supply. All the settings are saved on the big computer. So now I use the little computer a lot more, which lets me reply individually to comments. It might be the same for you. Try another computer.


Hello! Thank you for reading my blog and for commenting. I try to reply as quickly as I can and I really appreciate your interest in my life and doings here in The Compost Bin.
