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

Good for you David :) This is catching on.

Made my token effort in the dark. Don't want to frighten the immigrant African family next door. No garden here to work on as such so I played with the Gardenia for a moment.

Good for you David, don't tell everyone where you live, or it won't be private anymore, there are eyes in the sky you know.

Wellthis morning was warm and sunny, so was able to spent some time in our very private back yard in the all together.  Felt good!

Not exactly naked gardening but in daylight though ... we gardened bra-less today.

Don't doubt the health benefit of 'naturism' but doubt the continuing freedom of those practising it in a suburban setting. Can't have posties falling off their bikes and delivery people running for cover ;-)

Well done girls!! :D

We still have the rest of the day. I am on a small block with neighbours hard on each side of me but I think I could get away with a little outdoor gardening after dark.
