It appears former members of the Crocus Grove nudist colony have found a new place to let it all hang out.... Many of the 60 members of the onetime clothing-optional getaway north of Beausejour pitched in to help buy 80 acres of farmland in the RM of Brokenhead, 10 kilometres east of Libau.... A group led by ___________ and John Kundert searched familiar surroundings and found the well-treed cattle pasture less than a half kilometre east of their old site, but on the south side of PR 317. The group purchased the property in September for an undisclosed but 'substantial' amount. The group is now in the process of having it serviced with hydro and are moving forward with plans for tent and mobile unit lots, a new pool, hiking trails, volleyball courts and a rec centre by the end of the summer.... Naturist Legacy is a private membership-based nonprofit corporation created to own and manage land held in trust for naturist use. Simply defined, naturism in the practice of going without clothing in social settings (generally in mixed-gender groups of all ages) in the belief that doing so is beneficial.
