Stewarding

Be the first to provide our guests with a warm welcome when they arrive. Help prepare venues by setting out chairs, keeping guests safe and maintaining access routes so that everybody can participate in the programme. You will need a big heart for serving others and bags of stamina and energy for long hours and physical work.

Being a steward is hugely rewarding and enables you to meet guests and see something of the Spring Harvest programme as you fulfil your role. It is a physically demanding role, but those who come back year after year often do so because of the sense of community amongst the stewarding team.

If you’re not afraid of hard work, and are able to fulfil the physical aspects of this role, you could become one of the unsung heroes of Spring Harvest!
