Event Description

Thirteenth Annual WNGD

Get ready for the Annual World Naked Gardening Day (WNGD)! 

People across the globe are encouraged, on the first Saturday of May, to tend their portion of the world's garden unclothed as nature intended.

Gardening has a timeless quality, and anyone can do it: young and old, singles or groups, the fit and infirm, urban and rural. An elderly lady in a Manhattan apartment can plant new annuals in her window box. Families can rake leaves in their back yard. Freehikers can pull invasive weeds along their favorite stretch of trail. More daring groups can make rapid clothes-free sorties into public parks to do community-friendly stealth cleanups.

Why garden naked? First of all, it's fun! Second only to swimming, gardening is at the top of the list of family-friendly activities people are most ready to consider doing nude. Moreover, our culture needs to move toward a healthy sense of both body acceptance and our relation to the natural environment. Gardening naked is not only a simple joy, it reminds us--even if only for those few sunkissed minutes--that we can be honest with who we are as humans and as part of this planet.

"When you're out there with a gentle breeze on you, every last hair on your body feels it. You feel completely connected with the natural world in a way you just can't in clothes."

- Barbara Pollard of Abbey House Gardens

No... no Elaine.  It's a day time event.  I'm videoing for World Naked Garden Day.

Andy even for a slice of your cheese and a swig of your liquor, nothing would persuade me to drive at night.

Alright ladies and gents... who's coming to my place on the 6th?  Why is everyone running away?

:) only for the brave....or isolated.

Skinny dipping in an isolated tributary of the Richmond River is one thing ... gardening with neighbours both sides and across the road is another! To those brave enough: beware low-flying aircraft and drones ;-)
