Habitat Aid

Supplying all the plants, equipment, knowledge and advice you'll need to create a wildlife habitat.

Habitat Aid supplies all of the plants, equipment, knowledge and advice you will need to create a wildlife habitat. Operating out of a farm in Somerset, this interesting company is the brainchild of Nick Mann, an ex-investment banker eager to deliver biodiversity and sustainable habitats back into the landscape.

A CHARITABLE CONCERN

Half of all online sales profits are donated to several wildlife and conservation charities, such as the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, The Tree Council, Gardening for the Disabled and Buglife.

CREATING A WILDLIFE HABITAT?

At Habitat Aid, you will find native trees and shrubs, fruit trees and exotic trees available for purchase, all of which have been sourced through a community of small specialist UK nurseries and growers. Bring back Britain’s wildflower meadows by purchasing wildflower plants and seeds, or introduce a wildlife pond with Habitat Aid's carefully sourced selection of aquatic and wetland plants. Think you don’t have the space to create a wildlife habitat? Think again - and consider introducing a green roof to your property. Habitat Aid also provides a consultancy service on how to do this, as well as supplying the necessary equipment.

COURSES

As well as selling trees and plants, Habitat Aid offers one day courses in Orchard Management, Making and Managing Wildlife Ponds, Meadow Creation and Management and more. Courses are usually held at the company's HQ in Somerset and can be booked via the site.

WORKING WITH CORPORATE CLIENTS

Habitat Aid has worked with a number of corporate clients and landscape and ecology professionals, such as M&S, The Forestry Commission, the Environment Agency and the Co-op.
