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.

Visit by John "Compost" Cossham

Today I was delighted and privileged to have a friend visit. who is one of my composting and zero waste heros. John Cossham is well known in low carbon/zero waste/composting/sustainability fields as an absolute champion waste reducer. He has appeared on TV, radio and in print and is an excellent example of how we could all reduce our carbon footprint on this planet.
He was on a trip around the West Country visiting various other friends and going to meetings and talks and I was lucky enough to catch him for a morning out of his busy schedule :)

We went down into the wood where we  had a great time talking about composting and recycling and Moors Wood and all sorts :)

I then took John to his next destination via a couple of local sites - The Great Yew Tree in Much Marcle Church yard and also Kempley Church. He really enjoyed seeing both of them.

It was wonderful to catch up with you again John, I do hope we meet up again soon :)
