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!

10 years ago today, we had snow!


10 years ago today, it was snowing here!




and had been for some days.




Bit of a contrast with today! Last night we had a terrific storm, which actually managed to overturn this (heavy!) hen run on to its top. Fortunately it was empty, all the big hens are still inside the Mega Hen Pen as part of the Avian flu lockdown and all the Seramas (apart from Algy) are in the polytunnel for the same reason. Algy is, of course, inside the house with us ;)

No snow at all this last winter, here.
