The trash area in the northeast corner of Sunsport has been eliminated. Large trash items may now be placed only in the maintenance yard with the supervision of Team Leader Roger Byrd, preferably Monday through Friday.
The trailer holding recyclable scrap metal will be moved to the maintenance area. Plastic bags full of waste should be deposited in the dumpster in the recycling area, not in the maintenance area.
Reminder: Please use the appropriate containers for throwing out items. Place materials such as clean paper and cardboard in the yellow bins; cans, plastics (except styrofoam, utensils,and bags), juice boxes, and glass and plastic bottles in the blue bins. Place large items such as platforms and furniture near, but not in, the dumpster. Place only bagged garbage and small items in the dumpster.

To help Sunsport and the environment, *please deposit aluminum cans in a special bin with a round hole in the top in the main recycling area.
  • The yellow containers are for paper and flattened cardboard
  • The blue containers are for aluminum cans*, glass, juice boxes, and plastics except styrofoam, bags, and utensils.
  • Deposit other trash in the large grey or black trash bins with tops.
Please secure all trash cans tightly since raccoons are skilled at opening containers and making large messes. Thanks.

Please make a small donation to help us continue to develop the Meditation and Permaculture Projects.

The Sunsport Permaculture Group has been very active. Recent projects have been enlarging the Community Garden and digging a swale to improve the water flow. The meetings have been well attended. Meetings are twice a month.

Check the website for exact day, at 7 pm in the restaurant.

The Permaculture Sunsport group is meeting on the second and fourth Tuesdays at 7:00 PM in the dining room. Contact Geoffrey Farmer, geoffrey@pclox.org, to receive notice of meetings and garden workdays.
Hey What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a philosophy of design for creating a sustainable human culture. That is, it's a way of thinking about how we set up the support systems around us: shelter, food, water, energy, society and business. Well designed permaculture systems allow us to live as a beneficial part of the ecosystems around us.

Art & Naturism.......naturist spirited art

One with Nature:

Nude Paintings in Natural Settings

Alexandre Cabanel, The Birth of Venus, 1863
Depictions of the nude figurative form is a time-honored artistic tradition dating back to antiquity. Depending on the period in question, the symbolism of nudity in artwork varies in associations ranging from fertility or athleticism and of course, the erotic. The depiction of nude figures set within landscapes conveys an unparalleled sense of freedom, relaxation, and nonchalance. It is no doubt a fairly uncommon scene outside of the artist’s canvas. Here are ten paintings of the nude figure(s) portrayed within breathtaking natural settings.

1. Proto-Cubist Nude by Jean Metzinger

Jean Metzinger, Two Nudes in an Exotic Landscape, ca. 1905
This painting is by a notable French painter and theorist of the Fauve period, Jean Metzinger. It is a fine example of Proto-Cubist work with a stunning mosaic effect. The figures in the center of the painting are rendered in natural tones, while the setting is exuberant and whimsical. The silhouettes of the figures are natural and full and appear to almost blend into the dream-like landscape that envelopes them.

2. Classical Nude by William-Adolphe Bouguereau

William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Birth of Venus, ca. 1879
This painting is reminiscent of a previous rendition of Sandro Botticellidepicting the same mythological subject matter and is one of William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s most famous works. Standing almost 10-feet tall and about 7-feet wide (3 x 2 meters), this large composition depicts Venus, the epitome of classical feminine beauty. Venus is depicted in the nude in the center of the frame, perched atop a scallop shell as she emerges from the sea. She is surrounded by several classical figures who are pictured gazing upon her with great interest and celebrating her arrival.
