World Naked Gardening Day

Last year this was a huge hit, so we’re sharing it again!

I am so excited about Saturday and do you know why? It is the first Saturday of May which happens to be World Naked Gardening Day! A chance to rip off the clothes and rip out the weeds. Second, only to Christmas, I think it’s my favorite holiday.

World Naked Gardening Day is an occasion that allows me to really bond with the family. Sometimes even the neighbors come by to join in the fun.

It’s an occasion that allows me to really bond with the family. Sometimes even the neighbors come by to join in the fun. That’s the highlight of living in the village. Events like this really get people talking. Before you know it, half the town is stopping by. People just get caught up in the excitement for gardening!

 How did World Naked Gardening Day get started?

World Naked Gardening Day was founded by Mark Storey in 2005. It was originally held in September but was later moved to May so it would fall just before International Permaculture Day (which is the first Sunday of May). There is talk of the date being changed to mid-summer due to complaints from chilly Northerners.

It is a chance to commune with nature, reconnect with friends, get a tan without those pesky lines and soak up a little more vitamin D. With so many benefits, why not join in?

Celebrate World Naked Gardening Day with Family

So get the whole family together, get out those gardening sheers and celebrate World Naked Gardening Day. Invite friends, family, and neighbors and host a BBQ after the gardening is done. Just a word of caution from past experience, avoid grilling burgers as they tend to splatter. So go ahead! Get naked and plant something this Saturday.

This post was written in satire. No gardeners were actually naked in the making of this post. Although many people do genuinely celebrate World Naked Gardening Day in the buff, I am not one of those people. A few of my neighbors are creepy enough as is.  – Thank you.

    Every day is a naked day at my house. Just don’t cement naked. It didn’t end well for me.

  2. I got so excited when I saw this post (I’m not kidding). Ever since I watched the movie: Off the Map with Joan Allen and Sam Elliott, I’ve wanted to live where I can garden in the nude. I have neighbors on one side that think we are crazy cause my husband wanders the yard in his underwear, and on the other side by a neighbor who told us when we moved in that nudity, gun shooting and drinking alcohol on this street of out prim and proper “Bible Belt” state is legal. I can’t wait to try. Sorry you were only kidding. This country is way too up tight! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Linda

      If I lived in the right location, I would totally do it. As you said, some people are just too uptight. Unfortunately, I have five neighbors in spitting distance of my house and a major road that goes right past us.

  3. Where do I sign up. Great idea!

    I,m sorry, Flowers

    Well, I wanted to see what those tomatoes looked like but you held veggies in front.

    I got a good laugh from this post! I remember one of the neighbor ladies gardening in her undies when I was a child. Very strange.

    1. I think everyone has one odd neighbor. We have a guy who doesn’t realize at the sapling doesn’t block the neighbors’ views when he’s outdoors.

  8. How fortunate this is coinciding with my 28th anniversary, we just might mix the two with some outdoor activities.

    1. So many fabulously dirty gardening expressions come to mind, but I’ll keep them to myself. Happy anniversary!

    Hubba Hubba.

    Once a year I enjoy participating in World Clothed Gardening Day. That’s the day I go after poison ivy. My neighbors don’t stop by the other 364 days of the year for some reason.

    1. Ouch! You crack me up ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. Tanya @Seven Springs Homestead says:
