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 also 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.

Make, do and mend


In an attempt to take my mind off the ever increasingly worrying situation in China with SARS CV 19, I decided to tackle the mountain of mending which has been sitting, waiting to be done, for several months. 

Most of them are items which are not urgent (pillowcases, a shirt seam where there are many other shirts which could be worn) but on delving in the pile I found my favourite tunic buried deep in there, that I honestly thought I had misplaced somewhere while staying in a hotel last year, or had been blown off the washing line never to be seen again! 

I have a shorter version that I also like, but the tunic version is my favourite



I was so pleased to see it, and immdiately got out the sewing machine and repaired the seam and darned the hole in it. 

Then did a happy dance, wearing it 😊
