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!

Really busy Saturday
The mediaeval Master's House in Ledbury is finally finished and now houses the Council hub and our new library, along with other local services. It is FABULOUS inside - so I showed Daisy around.
it has taken a very long time to restore but my word the wait has been worth it.
Then we had some lunch and took Compostgirl to Hereford to attend her monthly Write On writers workshop, then after some shopping we came home and I got on with more seed sowing. I then did all sorts of Lugg Valley Company of Archers paperwork and form making : )
Algy Serama chicken returned to inside house ( he is still a bit poorly ) and we settled down to watch The Voice on TV. Now catching up with admin stuff on computer and blogging about my day
