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!

New followers and the closing of The Crafty Compostwoman Blog
I know I have some new followers on Bloglovin but unfortunately I do not know a way to work out who you are? But be assured you are most welcome!
And I have a few new followers on my Google feed - thank you !
So a warm welcome all my new followers and please do comment if you like - I do try to respond and am always keen to read your comments :)
And while on the subject of Google - despite my best efforts I cannot renew the subscription for the domain for The Crafty Compostwoman blog and it will expire on 6th Feb 2014. When this happens I will lose the whole blog as it won't revert back to the free blogspot site.
So, I am going to start posting the crafting stuff on here, The Compost Bin, again rather than keeping a separate blog for it. Sorry but I can't think how else to manage it!
I have exported all the posts ( and the lovely comments) over from The Crafty Compostwoman and hopefully all will work out ok.
I will just have to remember to wash my composty hands before starting on some crafting :)
And while I am talking about crafts, here is what I have been up to with the crochet hook over the last few days
