I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked, : I am mad for it to be in contact with me.
- Walt Whitman: From Song of Myself (1855)

Make World Naked Gardening Day EVERY DAY!
"Officially, The Naturist Society was formed in 1980. Unofficially, however, it goes back much further, to the American "free beach"
movement of the 1970s and, earlier still, to a back-to-nature ethos that emerged in Europe during the industrial revolution."
The Naturist Society is also the home of Nude & Natural (N) magazine, the leading publication on naturism in the United States and the authority on socially responsible and adventurous social nudity.
The image at the right is from N magazine issue 26.2, Winter 2006.
