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!

Sunday outing - Archery, lunch and more h.Art visits



 Last Sunday we went out to Archery practise in the morning and then had lunch in The Bunch of Carots at Mordiford, which is right next to the River Wye.





After lunch we had a walk by the river.






Compostman showed Compostgirl how to "skim" stones :)


She caught on fast!


Then we left Compostman to do stuff at home and went out to see some h.Art events. Compostgirl was at school all week so missed out on our earlier trip to Mike and Tamsin's event, so I said I would take her there.


But first we dropped into blue ginger Gallery to see all the artists at work


and Compostgirl had an ice cream :)


Then it was off back to Tamsin and Mike's place, where we found Mike in full flow, making chair legs from Ash logs.







Compostgirl was fascinated by it all :)


Tamsin had the most amazing display hanging from the beam over the veranda outside her workshop





Fabulous :) Simply stunning :) I love her work :)

We enjoyed our trip out together :)
