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, lecturer, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and have spent the last 11 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!

Wales, Day 3


Today we went to Castell Henllys



Compostgirl decided to have a go at the sensory trail :)





Then needed to wash her feet! Fortunately there was a handy ( or should that read footy?) stream




Me, by the Sacred Spring



We made some crowns


Compostgirl by the offerings people leave at the Sacred Spring.



The top of the hill and the  reconstructed Iron Age roundhouses.


 It came on to rain so we sheltered inside one and had a lovely chat to another couple.


There is now an excellent visitor center at the site where we had a yummy lunch and bought some things from the shop.



Afterwards, it was really raining hard but we decided to carry on to Llangranog, to the beach.



My paternal family come from here and I spent many happy days on this beach as a small child.










It was very very wet and windy, but we had fun!

  1. We went to the iron age fort in the summer (although I think you had better weather!). It's a great day out I think I could happily go back to those times if we could keep the modern medicine and broadband!
