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!

Busy day with a trip to Hereford.
Up early today and got cracking with chores, then went into Hereford with a very long shopping list. I need a new wind and waterproof coat as my old one leaks and is now hanging off me. So I had a look around the various outdoor clothing shops and found one I liked, which was in the Sales with a substantial discount on it, so I bought it.
I had a wander around the Cathedral for a bit, I love Hereford Cathedral
And I also had a wander around the streets surrounding the Cathedral - this is the High Street looking away from the Cathedral precinct.
I then got on with more shopping, all things I needed but I did look at a few "wants" while I was there :)
Home, to do a bit outside while there was still light and then do the normal evening chores. Bed early as I was very tired after my long day out :)
