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.

Cars, Cuckoos and Nightingales

When I got up Di and I went for a walk with Hooch the dog to the beach, then we talked compost in her garden. I left lovely friends house at mid day and then spent 6 hours rather than the expected 3 hours driving home from St Davids peninsular cos my car went wrong and was on a safe mode go slow ie "couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding" power mode ... and service station food did not look great if you are gluten and dairy intolerant like me. So I drank what I had in the car, stopped twice for a break and then pressed ( slowly) on. At home now and making up for lost eating and drinking time. Also, It was Compostman's birthday today  so we had wine and choklit brownies from Wales ( which were yum) smile emoticon

Then later on, I just heard the first nightingale of our year here. Also heard the first cuckoo in Moors Wood last week, on Monday.
