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!

Getting excited about #BLEMay @biglunchextras @edenproject

I am getting very excited about going to The Big Lunch Extra May 2015 camp at The Eden Project this weekend :) Details HERE

I take the train Fri morning and the train back Monday lunchtime and I have a whole weekend of networking, talking, workshops and fun, learning about better ways to build resilience and sustainable community projects. 

Mine, of course, involves compost. Lots of it :) And teaching people about keeping chickens and growing veg and good nutritious meals.

Watch out for updates during the weekend on my Twitter feed, Facebook page and personal page :) Compostman and Compostgirl are at home all weekend and I have promised to keep them posted as well :)
