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.

A tidy garden and a full cold frame


I have been mowing :)

and cleaning out hen houses :) And making lots of compost with the grass I cut and the chicken bedding :)

And digging out finished compost to put on the new raised beds :) And sowing seeds and pricking out plants and being ever so busy outside.

 I have made some time to sit outside in the sunshine on the patio :) Which is still as lovely as it was last year :) And the Gabriel Ash coldframe is wonderful and proving so useful to have as a warm place to put plants before they finally go into the polytunnel. It looks good as well :)

  1. You have been busy. Your mini green house looks lovey and sturdy, and a good size, too.
