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!

Celestine and The Hare Book Launch at blue-ginger gallery
So today we all went to blue ginger gallery to join in with the fun of the opening day of The Peace of Wild Things exhibition where many wonderful artists were gathered,
also later we had the launching of Karin Celestine's new books and a party! For those of you who have no idea what I mean, Karin is the creator of Celestine and the Hare, a world where needle felted creatures ride space hoppers, eat lot of choklit and are kind to each other. She has also created a Tribe of Chokliteers, we pledge to live norty and eat lots of choklit and be silly and kind to everyone.
As many of you may know Karin is a friend and we have a lot of her creations at home :) So I brought along the felted tribe to say "hello"
We were asked to make paper boats for the evening, as one of the books is called " A Paper Boat for Panda"
The first book "Small finds a home" has Emily showing us how to stick weave. Here is me and Compostgirl doing some weaving.
I brought along my Moley, who was proudly modelling Emily's stick woven scarf, to meet up with Mrs Mole
We had a lovely evening in a fabulous place along with lots of friends :)
