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, lecturer, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and have spent the last 11 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!

Road trip to Scotland - setting off today :) Wish me luck!

I am off to the Highlands of Scotland (today!) to meet up with friends, to go camping, hiking and sea canoeing. I am SO excited about this trip :)

Am going solo, so family are not with me. I am meeting up with Forest School and Outdoor Ed friends who I have not seen for years :) We are off on an Awfully Big Adventure :)  And will be doing some CPD :)

Weather forecast is a bit dire but we all have waterproofs etc  and a positive attitude so BRING IT ON is all I can say to the weather gods
Wish me luck!
