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.

Easter Monday walk in the wood

Well we had a BIG storm blow through here last night, so today I went down to the wood to check if any trees had fallen over.

No big trees but a lot of branches down and some smaller trees.

The wild daffodils are now spectacular. I think this year is the best display I have seen in the 19 years we have lived here!

Lots of badger activity

Yes more wild daffodils!

Bluebells are also starting to show themselves :) And primroses

Spring has definitely sprung here in Herefordshire!!
