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.

Garden party

Today I hosted a social gathering at Compost Mansions, for fellow Master Composters and LFHW ambassadors, visitors from the Bisley Community Compost site, some MC's from neighbouring Gloucestershire and some of the various Council staff who manage the MC scheme.

It was a lovely day, we had 22 people visiting :) We had a "bring and share" lunch as well as a BBQ using the LFHW cooker and kit.

Before lunch I gave the party a tour of the garden, composting area, chickens and the Wood and we had many animated discussions about composting!
