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, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and spent 10 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!

I love it when this happens :)
I got an unexpected parcel in the post this morning :)
Which contained vegetable seeds from an organic supplier I had not heard of :) And the beads are the start of a necklace, now :)
I am not feeling very well today - I ate a slice of home made, organic, wholemeal bread for lunch (not eaten wheat for 5 months now) and have had unfortunate after effects as a result. It looks like wheat is a no-no for me now.
I didn't open the parcel until late afternoon ( I put it down somewhere "safe", so safe I couldn't find it for 6 hours!) and this little parcel really cheered me up :)
Thank you Jane, for a very kind and thoughtful gift.
