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!

Celestine and the Hare Advent Calendar

As regular readers of this blog may know, I am a huge fan of Karin Celestine, writer of tales and felter of creatures.

I've been on a number of her workshops and am an enthusiastic member of her Tribe of the most marvelous Chokliteers ( we do mischief and random acts of kindness and generally try to spread a bit of love in the world, as well as having lots of fun and get togethers, which involve a lot of laughter, cake and choklit)

Karin makes the most wonderful stop motion films of the antics her tribe of felted creatures get up to in her Shed, when no one is looking .

Every December she does an Advent calendar on her website, which is always great fun. If you'd like to see what I'm on about, do go and take a look :)

There's also a shopfront, selling her books and creatures and note pads and mugs and, well, all sorts.

Karin never fails to brighten up my day :)

  1. Years ago I started following her on Facebook because I saw you mention her here and I'm such a fan, her little videos really make me smile!
