Hi there Wigglers

My name is Gwen, aka Kompost Girl, and I'm one of your new Guest Bloggers - composting, and more specifically vermicomposting, is my passion!

I graduated as a Master Composter, at the Master Composters' Conference which took place at Garden Organic near Ryton, Coventry on the 25th of July '09 and I'll be entertaining you with my composting adventures over the next week or so.

Tomorrow: "What is a Master Composter?"
