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.

Clearing out the polytunnel

I've just spent a day clearing out the polytunnel, in advance of the Great Recovering which will happen in the next week (weather permitting)

I took the opportunity to have a good clear out of 22 years of accumulated plant pots, and other gardening s related stuff

Any one local to me want some, or all of these? Plant pots large and small, multi cell trays large and small, seed trays, gravel trays, a bit dusty and most of them have been used, but are all in vgc.

I Will NOT send them to be landfilled or incinerated!
