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.

A surprise! #feelgoodprizes from @EcoverUK

I was not expecting any more deliveries so was very surprised on Fri to get a parcel from Simon the Postman, a cardboard box filled with shredded paper...

but inside these Ecover cleaning products!

Apparently I have won a Pioneer Pack of Ecover through being one of the lucky winners of an Ecover Competition.

I have used the wipes before and they are really good; I have not tried the Oven cleaner but I am sure using it will be a much more pleasant experience than some commercial oven cleaners available!

The non bio laundry gel is also a new one for me - I wonder if it is the stuff I used as part of a trial of possible new Ecover products? Anyway, it got my cotton long sleeved t shirts nice and clean.


Although notice that, as it is raining AGAIN, I have had to set up the airer in the utility room as the ceiling dolly in the kitchen could not cope with all the drying we are having to do indoors.

Oh I cannot wait for the rain to stop. But at least we are not flooding, here ( well not much) My heart goes out to all the people in the UK who are suffering terribly with floods and rain and storm damage :(
