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!

Archery has been fun - we have all upgraded our equipment and are shooting better as a result which is very gratifying. Compostman has lot of new bits of equipment to keep him occupied and is now officially the fixer upper of all things fletch-y and arrow- y and bow-y related . I expect there is a proper term for that but I can't find it!
Compostgirl has won another writing competition :) Proud parent moment :) She is showing real talent and skill :)
Chickens continue to entertain, especially the Seramas :)
Have now lost nearly six stone in weight and am re discovering clothes which I packed away nearly 14 years ago, consigned to languish in the loft while I got fatter. No more - they are back on my increasingly smaller and curvier body :)
Garden largely put to bed for the winter, salads sown in the poly tunnel and various winter brassicas growing well.
really enjoying both Dr Who and Marvel Agents of Shield on TV whilst crocheting in front of the woodburner
