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!

This role requires 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 see something of the Spring Harvest programme as you fulfil your role. It is physically demanding, but those who come back year after year often do so because of the sense of community and camaraderie amongst the stewarding team.
