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.

I can compost anything*, in my marvelous Hot (compost) Bin! (revisited)

 @hotbincompost @eclectech  #marvelouscompostbin

(I posted this last year but in response to a question about the Hotbin I thought I would post it again)

Proof (if proof were needed) that natural fibres rapidly compost to nothing :) These were once a wool sweater and a cotton shirt before going into my HotBin; all that is left is the synthetic thread from the sweater and the lining from the buttonholes now :)

 *In case you were wondering, the title is a play on this very funny song :) Some of you may remember it used to be at the top of my home page :-) I thought it appropriate to put it up, again :-)

Disclaimer: You can't really compost anything in a compost bin, HotBin or not! Just most things (wink)
