During the last weekend of September the B7 Board and Steering Committee met on Öland to visit the yearly Harvest Festival. This event has been going on for thirteen years and is still growing in numbers both in visitors and in activities. The visitors are guided to the different activities listed in the official catalogue by pumkins balancing on a bale of straw, the pumpkin being the official symbol of the event. The Chairmanship organised a seminar on agriculture and environment together with the Farmers Association. The seminar gathered almost 90 people who recieved information both about B7 and the new Sea environment proposition that the Swedish agricultural department has handed in to the parliament, and the local farmers' view on the same.
The B7 work group People to People was also meeting on Öland during this weekend to inform the visitors to the Harvest festival about B7 and sell products from the islands. During two hectic days they handed out hundreds of information folders and sold an extensive amount of B7 local produce.
