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.

More from the Study of Doom...

 Don't forget to enter my Blog 7th birthday giveaway! Draw will take place this week!

After what seems like forever tidying and de cluttering and sorting and filing -

I found the diary! Which means I now know when I have to visit the Dentist and the Opticians this week, and hand over lots of money to them  - hmm not so great.

But, I found last years diary as well, so I managed to complete an expenses claim (the diary had the invoices I needed to finish the claim, inside) So money in as well as out.

 Much improved :)

I also had a clear out of the Cupboard of Doom ( craft workshop storage cupboard) and made room for a number of the storage boxes containing things I don't use very often to go in there. This has freed up the shelf space for things I use frequently, and I was also able to move some of my quilting and sewing stuff from off the floor of the sitting room (where it has been annoying Compostman for weeks )

I took a lot of stuff to the Red Cross charity shop in Ledbury and the recycling bin got a few bits of paper and card.

Big crafting table looks a lot tidier now

And there is now room for the ribbon store and another box of yarn under the big crafting table.

What is it people say? Tidy desk, tidy mind? Hmm we shall see.


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.
