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.

River Carnival and Blossomtime

Spent the weekend being very busy at Hereford River carnival  I had an excellent day - weather could have been kinder but a lot of brochures were taken and many people made various craft items

 emotand Algy and Mrs the Serama chickens were admired 

This child really enjoyed leaning how to stick weave.

and then I was at The Big Apple Blossomtime event at Putley on Sun and Mon. 
This is just over the field and up the lane from me and I love doing it.

Weather was cold and wet and there were a few less people than previous years but despite that it went well. Algy and Mrs A the Seramas wowed the crowds as usual and sales of my tomato plants went well. I have repeat customers who come each year for unusual varieties. Lots of brochures for all the things I offer here at Moors Wood were taken away. I love local food events
