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.

Birthday :)

I went and picked some flowers from the wood - I do this every year on my birthday :)

Lovely presents from my family :)

And Compostman baked me the most amazing choklit brownies EVER!

I have had some wonderful presents - strangely mainly made by friends or bought from their indy shops!  I now am the proud keeper of a Celestine and the Hare Panda ( will she be sweary? Oh yes!) a Wentworth Jackie Morris Bluebell Hares jigsaw, some fab choklit, GoT box set ( we don't do Sky so my first chance to see it on the screen rather than in my imagination!) some fab books (Benedict Cumberbatch biog and The Hare Book. ) Also was gifted an early birthday present of the Celestine and the Hare workshop earlier this month so have Cyril the Squizzer from that   And I bought myself some colouring in pens and a grown up colouring in book to use them in last week 

This time last year I was really concerned that I might not make 53. I am so grateful that I have now improved good health and I am so grateful for all my friends. I love you all.
