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.

Injured knee.

As some of you may know, at the end of July I (well Cassi cat, really!) injured my knee. It's been over 4 weeks now and although it's improving slowly, I've found it very frustrating being unable to move around very much.

Initially I was on total rest for two weeks, on crutches, then allowed to move around, on crutches and started physio.

I managed to get to Green Gathering 2018 to do my usual workshops, with a lot of help and support from Compostman and all the lovely people in the Permaculture area.

But since then, despite now able to just mostly rely on a stick and doing my exercises every single day,  progress seems very slow. Sigh.
