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.

Grateful :)

OK a year ago I was in the septic febrile delusional throes of septicaemia and in immenent danger of being hospitalised. And next day actually was :( And nearly died and was so grateful to the NHS for saving my life.
This week or two I have been spraying myself with "Incognito" and wearing long sleeved shirts and avoiding damp ish places to protect myself from the dreaded Blandford Fly! Am trying to avoid being bitten again!
Am so grateful to the NHS and happy to still be around in June 2015 to post here :)

And, of course am very happy I have been following The Harcombe Diet and have now removed 9 stone of surplus weight as well since last year :) I feel SO much better, now :)
