The Wildlife and Birdcare Nature Recovery Project (WBC), a specialist British designer and manufacturer of wildlife habitats, feeders and food, has been licensed by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to produce a wooden habitat home collection for a variety of garden wildlife. 

The range is intended for wild birds, insects and other wildlife. It features an RHS-inspired dark green and natural-oak color scheme. 

All the habitats are eco-friendly, non-chemical-based and built with sustainability in mind. FSC U.K.-sourced larch wood is used, while ingredients for the insect hotels are foraged and selected by hand when each product is made. No glue is used in any of the construction, which means parts can be easily replaced when necessary. 

The RHS Supporting Nature range is available for garden centers, pet stores, farm shops and other retail outlets across the U.K., including at RHS Retail, as well as online. RHS branding will be on product wraps, packaging and associated wildlife information.  

“We’re enormously proud of these handcrafted wildlife habitats and delighted to have worked on this project with the RHS, an organization that shares our love of nature, our devotion to quality craftsmanship and our concern for sustainability,” says Sammy Holman, chief executive officer, WBC. “The support of the RHS is also invaluable in helping to further our work in encouraging acceptance and support of those who are autistic or diverse.”

WBC’s work is part of a rollout program offered to educators and other training providers who can become franchisees, making WBC’s teaching available in the U.K. and in the U.S. 

“The WBC-RHS habitat range is not only useful, beautiful and sustainable but well-made and sturdy with a strong focus on being fit for purpose that makes it ideal for the wildlife we are trying to support and encourage into the garden,” says Cathy Snow, licensing manager, RHS. “But there’s even more to this partnership. It enables the RHS to support WBC’s skills and learning program, an important part of WBC’s aims to be a social enterprise supporting business for good. We’re delighted to be working with WBC.”
