National Insect Week returns in 2020
Stockbridge technology centre
Stockbridge Technology Centre was created by a grower-led initiative as an independent horticultural centre of excellence supported by both the production and supply sectors of the industry.
National Insect Week encourages people of all ages to learn more about insects.
Every two years, the Royal Entomological Society organises the week, supported by a large number of partner organisations with interests in the science, natural history and conservation of insects.
