Stewards are some of the most important people at any Spring Harvest event. The truth is, we couldn’t run the event without them! They help us run all the venues, keep guests safe, assist guests with accessibility issues, and generally do all those tasks that may not be the most glamorous, but are utterly essential for us to run the event. The work is hard, not always exciting, and the days are long, but our stewarding teams foster a real team spirit and we have stewards who volunteer year on year because of the sense of family and fun. If you are physically fit and resilient and aren’t afraid of a bit of hard work, you could be a behind the scenes hero of Spring Harvest!
