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!

Joining the local WI
Yesterday I had an evening out which is rare for me and which I really enjoyed. I went ( just up the lane/in summer across the field via a footpath) to my local WI and really enjoyed myself, so much so that I have joined up :)
We listened to an interesting talk about the WI Denman college and the wonderful courses they offer - I can now see what I will spend a bit of my inheritance from Aunty Betty on - some residential course involving textiles I suspect :)
She would have liked that :) She liked nice feeling/looking fabrics and was always very interested in my latest craft efforts :)And then I can look at what I made and every time I make something else I can remember her :)
