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, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and spent 10 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!

Some grumbles to myself while hiding under the duvet.
More issues with Blogger.
More broadband problems.
Treacle the maybe pullet is now crowing. So is a Cockerel. And has reverted back to being named Creosote. So I will have to re home one of them.
Washing having to dry in the house.
Muddy shoes and boots.
Too cold to work even in the polytunnel - no sunshine to warm it up a little and make it bearable in there.
I am so fed up, full stop.
Thank you for listening.
Roll on February!
