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.

The Compost Bin features as a top 20 UK gardening blog.

I feel very pleased today :) I was asked a few weeks back if I could provide a seasonal gardening tip for Grabco, a grab hire and aggregate company based in the SE. I often get asked to do this, so I sent them a tip (compost related, of course) and thought no more about it :) Today  I have found I have been included in their Top 20 UK Gardening blogs :)

What Grabco say (link to article here)

Do you love gardening? We do! That is why we have picked our top 20 UK gardening blogs to share with you.
