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.

Hereford Contemporary Craft Fair.

Last Saturday we spent a lovely afternoon in Hereford at this event. Went especially to see Tamsin Abbott's display but were also entranced by some of the other exhibits.

Tamsin makes the most wonderful stained glass items. I have a small item at home but I wish I could own all these!

This wooden bowl with resin inlaid panel was made by a very clever process. You can find out more about Ben the artist on his website.

I loved this cabinet by Andy Tobin

Beautiful baskets made by Jenny Pearce. I went on one of her basket making weekends a few years ago :)

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Courtyard to see this event.
