Nude Gardeners

Host Scott Simon talks with Lee Dassler, Director of the McLaughlin Garden in South Paris, Maine. Friends of the Garden misplaced their clothes to be photographed in the nude for a 2003 calendar titled "Altogether for the Garden." Proceeds from the calendar sales are paying down the Garden's debt. The calendar can be purchased online at www.http://www.mclaughlingarden.org/. (4:00)
