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!

Moving raised beds, planting potatoes , Forest School meeting, WI quiz. All in one day!

Fab day today

Lovely weather here so we got lots of gardening done in the sunshine. Planted lots of seeds and pricked out toms, aubergine and pepper plants. Also moved one of the raised beds around ( as you do!)





Finished bed planted up with 25 of the  1st Early Rocket seed potatoes :)


Then I came in and did lots of paperwork stuff as well, but good paperwork involving progressing stuff I love to do

Then I went over to Garway to a Forest School FEN meeting which was fabulous, at Garway Primary School - made me wish I were teaching there! So good to meet with like minded people and we made a willow tepee and drank tea around the fire.

I drove back home with the sun setting behind me from Garway back to Ledbury to take part in the WI Quiz as part of Putley WI quiz team - and we are into the final! 5 teams will battle it out next month and we are one of them!

Tired now though :)

Looking forward to the Eclipse tomorrow and the Spring Equinox. Hope it will be fine :)
