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!

Ludlow Medieval Christmas Fair


On the Sunday of Compostgirls birthday weekend we went to Ludlow. We knew there would be loads of people trying to park in the town so we parked outside  and had a pleasant walk in through the streets














 Lots of street entertainers were there - this lady was an Ice Queen statue - and very good she was! Until she moved, which was a bit of a surprise :)

 

 Lots of stalls in the Castle square, but we wanted to get into the main event which was being held in the Castle proper.




 Fabulous displays by re enactment groups, and loads of people demonstrating living history.






Compostman and Compostgirl went up to the top of the tower - I don't like heights so I went shopping :)


 At the end of the day we had fun watching Knights of Plantagenet re enact a fight between the English and the French. Very realistic fighting and I bet they had bruises on their bruises that night!



 


We had a good day out but I was jolly cold at the end and glad to get home and light the fire.
